Flank Steak with Couscous Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beef flank steak (1 pound)
  • 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

Directions

  • 1. 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°).
  • 2. 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.
