Moroccan Steak
Hanger steak approximately 6-8 oz. per person for a full meal or smaller for bites

Marinade:
2 cups cilantro stems, chopped fine
4 garlic cloves, large
2 teaspoons cumin seeds, lightly toasted and ground

1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon coriander
⅛ teaspoon cayenne
½ cup extra virgin olive oil, to taste
1 lemon, zest and juice

1 bunch parsley
1/2 head of garlic
2 lemons, zest and juice
1 cup plus extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cucumber, small diced
1/2 red onion, small diced
Salt to taste

Blend parsley, garlic, lemon juice and zest, and olive oil until it is a dressing. Keep cool to the touch in order keep the bright green color. Mix with couscous, onion, and cucumber. You may not have to use all of the dressing but the couscous should crumble but hold its shape when lightly pressed in your fist.

Butter leeks:
Butter (more than you think you need)
Leeks
Salt to taste

Melt butter, then add leeks and salt. Cook slowly until it is just cooked. It should look like pasta in butter sauce, but no sauce should remain when pulled away from the pan.

Brandy poached carrots:
First clean and cut the carrots as you would like, season with salt and let sit for 15 minutes. Boil the alcohol off the brandy with 1 tsp of fennel seed then add the olive oil.  Use brandy and extra virgin olive oil 1/3 to cook carrots slowly at about 165-180 degrees.
