Ingredients

Directions

  • Lightly brush the steak with oil then season with salt. In a frying pan, quickly sear the steak over a high heat until browned on both sides, but still rare inside. Wrap in tinfoil and keep warm.
  • FOR THE DRESSING:

    Combine the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.
  • Stir the couscous into the boiling stock. Turn off the heat, cover tightly and leave for 5 to 10 minutes for the liquid to be absorbed. Fluff up using a fork then mix in a third of the dressing.
  • Slice the avocados then mix with another third of the dressing.
  • Thinly slice the steak and mix, together with any juices, with the remaining dressing.
  • Turn the hot, dressed couscous onto a platter. Spoon over the steak and avocado, then sprinkle with coriander leaves, if using.
  • Check seasoning then serve immediately alongside a few lettuce leaves.
  • Cook’s tips: Use quinoa instead of couscous, if preferred, following the cooking instructions on the pack. Alternatively, wrap the marinated beef and avocado in warm soft tortillas.
