Apricot Couscous:


Steaks: Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. In Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook beef, turning once, until medium-rare, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to plate; tent with foil to keep warm.

In same pan, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook garlic and ginger, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broth, orange juice and mustard, stirring up browned bits; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Scrape into serving dish; keep warm. Drizzle over steaks before serving.

Apricot Couscous: In same pan, bring broth to boil. Add broccoli; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in couscous, apricots, salt and pepper. Cover and let stand until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Fluff with fork; serve with steaks.
