Delicious, herb-rubbed beef skewers on a bed of light, fresh couscous salad. A recipe the entire family will love, courtesy of Weeknight Society.
Serves: 4
for the beef
  • 2 lb sirloin steak, sliced thin
  • ½ onion, grated
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp coriander
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp salt
for the couscous salad
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 ½ cups couscous
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup sliced tomato
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • ½ sliced red onion
  • juice of one lemon
  • zest of one lemon
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 4 oz feta cheese
for the cucumber-yogurt dipping sauce
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup grated cucumber
  • 1 clove grated garlic
  • salt
  1. Preheat oven broiler or the grill on high heat. Soak skewers in water if using wooden skewers. Combine herbs, spices, and grated onion in a Ziploc bag.
  2. Bring chicken stock to a boil. Remove from heat and add couscous. Stir gently then cover and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Place thinly sliced meat into the prepared marinade and let rest while the couscous cooks.
  4. Thread meat onto skewers. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and pop into the oven. Bake 10-15 minutes until cooked through.
  5. Loosen cooked couscous with a fork. Toss with chopped cucumber, tomato, remaining parsley, red onion, and dress with lemon, olive oil and red wine vinegar. Add feta cheese.
  6. Mix together yogurt, grated cucumber, and grated garlic. Serve couscous and top with kabobs straight from the oven with dipping sauce.
I'm really sensitive to spicy foods, and my kids don't love a lot of spice, so we omitted the red pepper flakes and used freshly ground black pepper for a little mild heat. And the kabobs were delicious.

We had our kabobs with a side of warm garlic naan. Just throw the bread on the grill next to the kabobs a few minutes before they are cooked through.
