380g (2 cups) couscous
20g butter, chopped
500ml (2 cups) boiling water
8 slices rare roast beef
1/4 cup chopped fresh continental parsley
1/4 cup shredded fresh mint
80g (1/2 cup) currants
1 small red onion, finely chopped
80ml (1/3 cup) fresh lemon juice
1 tbs finely grated lemon rind
1 garlic clove, crushed
1. Place the couscous and butter in a heatproof bowl. Add the boiling water. Stir until the butter melts. Cover and set aside for 3-4 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Use a fork to separate grains.
2. Meanwhile, cut the roast beef crossways into thick strips.
3. Add the beef, parsley, mint, currants, onion, lemon juice, lemon rind and garlic to the couscous. Season with salt and pepper and toss until well combined. Divide among serving bowls to serve.

You'll find the rare roast beef in the deli section at the supermarket.
