For adults, there’s spicy, Moroccan-flavoured tasty rump with fragrant couscous…for the kids, keep the couscous plain and serve with simple and juicy ‘steak-and-veg on stix’. To save time, barbecue the kids’ and adults’ skewers at the same time.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 zucchini, cut into 3 cm-thick rounds
600g beef rump steak, trimmed, cut into 4 cm cubes
1 onion, cut into wedges
185g couscous
olive oil, for brushing
8 bamboo skewers, soaked for 30 minutes
or 8 metal skewers

Ingredients for adults

Quantity Ingredient
1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely grated
2 teaspoons mint, chopped
2 teaspoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon flaked almonds, toasted
1 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
pinch cayenne pepper
pinch ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon olive oil

Method

  1. Preheat the grill of your barbecue to a medium heat.
  2. Thread the zucchini, beef and onion alternately onto the skewers and divide onto two plates.
  3. In a heatproof bowl, prepare the couscous according to the packet instructions. Fluff it up with a fork and divide into two portions.

Dish one

  • For the kids, lightly brush the skewers with olive oil, season with salt and grill for 3 minutes on each side for medium, or until cooked to their liking.

    Keep the couscous plain and serve with the juicy beef skewers.

Dish two

  • While the couscous is still warm, add the lemon zest, mint, parsley and almonds to one portion and stir with a fork. Cover and let it stand for 1 minute more.

    In a bowl, combine the spices with the oil. Season with salt and brush the spicy mixture onto the adults’ skewers. Barbecue for 3 minutes on each side for medium, or until cooked to your liking.

    Remove the beef, onion and zucchini from the skewers and serve on the fragrant couscous.
