Curried Beef with Apple CouscousPosted in Beef, Low Calorie, Main Course, Vegetables on January 22nd, 2010 by Eileen Devlin
So after about a one week hiatus here is what I will introduce. Ohhh. . .this was fantastic! Not too spicy, not too sweet – just an even blend of spice and flavor. Additionally, this was extremely simple to make.
Here you are:
1 lb boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1 in thick
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp canola oil
2 medium red/green sweet peppers cut into thin strips
1 med onion, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp curry powder
1 c water
3/4 cup apple juice
2 tsp instant beef bouillon granules
1 c whole wheat couscous
1 med tart green apple (Granny Smith), coarsely chopped1/3 c chopped dry roasted peanuts
1. Lightly sprinkle steak with salt/black pepper and place on grill until desired doneness (mine was med-well/well). You can also use your broiler.
2. Meanwhile, in a large non-stick skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add sweet pepper and onion; cook for 5 mins. Add curry and stir for one minute. Add water, juice, bouillon granules and bring to boiling. Stir in couscous and apple; remove from heat. Cover and let stand about 5 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Fluff couscous with fork.
3. Slice steak and serve over couscous mixture and top with peanuts. Makes 6 servings.
