  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 10
  • Total Time: 15
  • Serving: 4


2 cloves garlic, minced

2 green onions, thinly sliced

¼ cup (50 mL) minced fresh cilantro

Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp (30 mL) mild curry paste

4 tsp (20 mL) olive oil

1 tbsp (15 mL) minced ginger root

Pinch salt

1 lb (0.45 kg) Top Sirloin Beef Grilling Steak (1 inch/2.5 cm thick), trimmed and cut into 1 inch (2.5 cm) cubes

1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat couscous

1 EACH sweet red and green pepper, seeded and cut into 1 1/2 inch (4 cm) chunks

½ cup (125 mL) low-fat plain yogurt


Combine 1/2 cup (125 mL) water, garlic, green onions, cilantro, lemon rind and juice, curry paste, olive oil, ginger root and salt. Remove about 1/2 cup (125 mL) and set aside. In large sealable freezer bag, toss beef with remaining mixture; refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare couscous according to package directions, using 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) water; stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the reserved dressing. Set aside. Alternately thread beef and pepper chunks onto skewers, discarding marinade.
Grill or broil brochettes using medium-high heat for 5 minutes per side or until medium-rare. Meanwhile, stir remaining reserved dressing into yogurt for dipping sauce. Serve grilled brochettes with couscous and dipping sauce.
