marinated steak kabobs with couscous

Ever since the pre-labor scare, Carl and I have been trying to find ways to make meals simpler, for i get so tired at the end of the day. With the prospect of the weather heating up we thought it would be a great time to pull out the grill and do some marinating. Here is a divinely delicious marinading adventure...


1 1/2-2 lbs steak, sliced into small pieces
3/4 cups artichokes, quartered
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 box of Near East couscous (toasted pine nut)

Steak Marinade:

· 1/3 cup soy sauce
· 1/2 cup olive oil
· 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
· 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
· 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
· 3 tablespoons dried basil
· 1 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
· 1 teaspoon salt
· 1/4 teaspoon ground chili pepper


1. Marinade steak in bag or covered bowl in fridge for at least 3 hours.

2. Place steak and artichokes on kabobs and grill for 8-10 minutes (for medium well) on low heat.

3. Prepare boxed "toasted pine nut" couscous from Near East , with mushrooms added.

So easy, so tender and flavorful. We ate it with some freshly cut fruit. I can just imagine how good it would taste with a Mediterranean salad: fresh greens, kalamata olives, feta cheese...
