Steak with Spinach Couscous
3 T. olive oil
1.5 lbs. steak (I used strip, but you can use flank or ribeye or whatever)
Kosher salt & pepper
1 - 10 ounce box of couscous
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/4 c. pine nuts
2-4 cups of baby spinach (I'm using 4 cups next time because I love spinach and kept adding more to the mixture)
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1/2 - 1 t. lemon zest (optional - I'm going to add this next time)
Heat 1 T of olive oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Season the steak with 1/2 t. each salt and pepper. Cook to desired doneness, 4-6 minutes per side. Let rest before slicing.
Cook the couscous according the package directions; transfer to a large bowl (*Note: I can only find couscous that comes with the season packets and went ahead added the season packet to the couscous with good results.)
Wipe out the skillet. Cook the remaining 2 T. olive oil, garlic, and pine nuts over medium heat, string until golden, 2-3 minutes. Fold into the couscous with the spinach, Feta, lemon juice, and 1/2 t each of salt and pepper (or salt and pepper to taste).
Slice steak and serve with couscous.
