Kinda Moroccan

I realize proportions in this picture make it look like there is a ton of couscous on this platter.  Sometimes proportions are correct! 

I had a recipe for a Greek Spiced Sirloin and decided to make it.  But, I decided to go a little Morocco with it.  This brought on a conversation regarding how interesting it is that people from completely different parts of the world eat similar foods with very similar ingredients.  Additionally, the way these foods are served is similar in the region of the Mediterranean and Northern Africa.  Imagine that!

I am just happy that the foods and flavors taste so good! 

So,  The steak is pretty much self-explanatory.  Heat grill, add rub to steak, grill, rest, serve!  Before the steak was thrown on the grill (a.k.a. George), I grilled up some red onions and zucchini spears with a little olive oil and salt and pepper.  I also got a box of couscous going  (such hard work!).  The dip in the back is a yogurt, sour cream, cucumber mixture similar to raita (a.k.a. Indian cuisine happiness).  Oh and I threw in some feta, because there is always room for feta (or is it Jell-o?).   The only thing missing was pita! 

Do you like my serving suggestion?  We simply love our dishes made by a family friend.  Go to his website to check out some of his other pottery designs!

Hi! I found your blog under the Project Food Blog Contestants list. I love it. :) I have a serious tendency to do the same thing. There is so much out there, you don't have time to ever make something twice! Although, sometimes I do make my hubby's favorite cookies more than once. :) Good luck in the competition!
