Finely Chopped Tomatoes with Onion and Garlic
Beef Stock Powder
Chicken Stock Powder(ContainsCelery)
Water for the Beef (100ml)
Water for the Couscous
Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on high heat. When the oil is hot, add the beef mince. Break up the beef with a wooden spoon as it browns and cook for 5-6 mins.
Trimthe courgette then slice into rounds about 1cm thick. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Once the beef has browned, add the chermoula and garlic. Stir and cook for 1 minute more. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and water (see ingredients for amount), then stir in the beef stock powder and harissa paste. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Leave the stew to simmer until thick and tomatoey, 15-20 mins.
Meanwhile, boil your kettle. Put the couscous in a bowl. Add the chicken stock powder and a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Pour the boiling water for the couscous (see ingredients for amount) into the bowl. Stir together, cover tightly with cling film and leave to the side for 10 mins or until ready to serve.
Meanwhile, heat another frying pan on high heat (no oil). Add the courgette and leave to cook until charred, 4-5 mins each side. Transfer to a plate, sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside. Crumble the feta.
Taste the stew and season to taste with salt and pepper if needed then fluff up the couscous with a fork. Divide between bowls, spoon over the beef stew and finish with some charred courgette and top with the feta. Enjoy!
