Beef and Pepper Skewers
with Zucchini and Couscous Salad
Using skewers to alternate meat with veggies is a genius way to sneak colorful foods into those little tummies. In this recipe, we’ve paired beef with peppers and tossed together a citrusy couscous salad to round it all out. Feel free to use the broiler or the grill for this recipe — up to you!

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat the broiler to high. Soak the skewers in water. Core, seed, and dice the peppers into 3/4-inch cubes. Halve, peel, and dice the shallots into ¾-inch pieces. Finely chop the parsley, reserving a few leaves for garnish. Halve each zucchini lengthwise, then cut into thin half- moons. Zest and halve the lemon.
Cook the couscous: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add the couscous and cook 8-9 minutes, until al dente. Drain.
Meanwhile, toss the beef in a large bowl with the peppers, shallots, Southwest seasoning, and a large drizzle of olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper. Thread the beef, peppers, and shallots onto the skewers, alternating between each.
Place the skewers onto a baking sheet. Place under the broiler for 5-7 minutes, turning halfway through, until lightly charred and cooked to desired doneness.
Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini. Cook, tossing, for 4-5 minutes, until slightly golden. Toss the couscous, lemon zest, and parsley into the pan. Add a squeeze of lemon and a large drizzle of olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Finish and serve: Serve the beef and pepper skewers on a bed of zucchini and couscous salad. Garnish with the reserved parsley leaves and enjoy!
