My friend’s Myra and Harriet make this all the time.
Of course they gave me the recipe twice and I lost it twice.
Third time was a charm
One tablespoon butter or oil
One sliced onion
One sliced red pepper
One chopped tomato
1 1/2 pounds of chicken, beef, pork or shrimp
Cut into thin slices or bite size pieces
One 24 ounce package of your favorite frozen vegetable.
I used peas and carrots.
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
One package of Near East Mediterranean Curry Couscous
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
cilantro for garnish
Melt the butter and add the meat
Stir fry for 2 minutes
Add the onion, pepper and tomatoes and stir fry for another two minutes
Make sure the meat is cooked.
Add the seasoning mix from the couscous, the broth and the frozen vegetables
Bring to a boil
Add the couscous and raisins
Add the garlic salt and black pepper
Mix everything together
Take off the heat and cover till all the broth is absorbed
Garnish with cilantro.
This is great hot but also good cold
I also had it with a dollop of greek yogurt.
Thanks girls, I love this.
