Preparation method

Prepare the couscous by tipping it into a heat-proof bowl with the harissa, sultanas and lemon zest and pour over the hot stock, stirring with a fork. Cover and leave for 10 minutes while the stock is absorbed.

Season the lamb steaks and rub them with the oil, heat the pan and cook the meat over a high heat turning often to cook evenly, for about 8 minutes in total. Allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes or so.

Stir the couscous again and break up any lumps with a fork. Sprinkle some chopped coriander over the couscous and serve with the steaks, a small bowl of yogurt and a wedge of lemon to squeeze over.
