With my newly made homemade chicken broth, I cooked a delicious meal last night – Steak with Couscous and Asparagus.
Publix had a sale on steaks, so I grab three so I would have leftovers. I marinated them all day in a quick mix of Dale’s seasoning and water (sometimes Dale’s can be a little strong for me).
They also had a sale on asparagus, and since I have given up cheese for lent, I couldn’t do my normal Parmesan recipe. I found an Ina Garten recipe for roasted asparagus, and decided to try it! First I cut off the bottoms, and wash the leftover stems. I set my oven to 400 degrees, and then tossed the cleaned asparagus with salt, pepper and olive oil. Place it on a baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes – easy.
For the couscous, I wanted to cook with my homemade chicken broth. Bring the couscous and chicken broth to a boil, then simmer the pot for 12 mins. At the end, I added a little more salt and lemon juice.
Back to the steaks. I put them on my Cuisinart grill, searing them first, and then allowing them to cook to about medium. I don’t trust myself as a cook yet to keep something medium rare. I’d rather it be closer to done!
Everything finished about the same time, and the result – delicious!
