Beef Skewers with cous cous and lemon yoghurt sauce

This recipe comes from the “Feed your Family for under $10″ recipe cards from Coles. This was a very tasty dinner, but it didn’t actually contain any vegies!! Next time I think I’ll add some vegies to the cous cous, or serve it with some salad.

  • 500g beef mince
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsps finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsps bread crumbs
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups cous cous
  • 4 tbsps olive oil
  • 2/3 cup greek style yoghurt
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  1. In a bowl combine mince, garlic, bread crumbs and 2 tbsps of parsley. Combine well and season with salt and pepper. Form into 8 sausage shapes and thread onto skewers (or make into about 20 meatballs)
  2. Cook in a fry pan or on a grill for about 4 minutes per side (mine were more of a squareish shape so I probably did more like 3 minutes on each side, since mine had 4 sides). Remove to a plate and rest for 3 minutes
  3. While the meat is cooking, bring the stock to the boil in a saucepan. Turn off heat, add cous cous, mix and cover, then let it sit for about 5 minutes.
  4. Fluff with a fork and add olive oil and 1 tbsp of parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Mix yoghurt with lemon juice and lemon zest ans season with salt and pepper (there seems to be a lot of seasoning going on in this recipe :P)
  6. To serve spoon the cous cous onto the plate, top with the beef skewers (2 -3 per person is plenty), then drizzle the yoghurt sauce over the top
