Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a dry medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add couscous to hot saucepan; toast for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove couscous from saucepan.

  • Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Lightly coat the unheated rack of a broiler pan with nonstick cook ground black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Pour 1 tablespoon of the marinade into a custard cup; set the remaining 4 tablespoons marinade aside. Brush the 1 tablespoon marinade onto beef. Place beef on the prepared rack. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat until desired doneness, turning once. Allow 12 to 14 minutes for medium.

  • In the same medium saucepan combine 1 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; bring to boiling. Stir in couscous. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 7 minutes. Stir in the reserved 4 tablespoons marinade, the tomatoes, and 2 tablespoons of the feta cheese. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until couscous and tomatoes are tender.

  • To serve, thinly slice beef across the grain; serve over couscous mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons feta cheese.
