Flank Steak with Couscous

 Flank Steak with Couscous
It takes just minutes to broil this nicely seasoned flank steak that’s served with made-in-minutes couscous. Slicing the meat on an angle across the grain produces the most tender results. If you prefer, a pound of sirloin steak can be used instead of the flank steak in this recipe.
4 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 25 min.


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 packages (5.8 ounces each) roasted garlic and olive oil couscous
  • 3/4 cup diced roasted sweet red peppers, drained
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing


  • In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients; rub over flank
  • steak. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or
  • until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat
  • thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done,
  • 170°).
  • Meanwhile, cook couscous according to package directions. Stir in
  • roasted peppers. Thinly slice steak across the grain; drizzle with
  • Italian dressing. Serve with couscous. Yield: 4 servings.
