New recipe

Here's a heathy recipe that's requested often in our house.  Steak with spinach couscous

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pound flank steak
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 10-ounce box couscous (I like the parmesan flavored)
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or minced
1/4 cup pine nuts (I don't normally include)
2 cups baby spinach
1/4 cup Feta cheese
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Season the steak with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.  Cook to the desired doneness, 6 minutes per side for medium-rare.  Let rest before slicing.
  • Cook the couscous according to the package directions.
  • Wipe out the skillet.  Cook the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, the garlic, and pine nutes over medium heat, stirring until golden, 2 to 3 minutes.  Add lemon juice.
  • Arrange steak and spinach on plates.  Sprinkle couscous and feta on spinach.  Pour oil/garlic/pine nuts/lemon juice over the spinach and steak.

(We don't eat nearly the entire box of couscous - maybe half?  Add I spray a little lemon juice over the plate in addition.)  Enjoy!
