As we sat down to eat last Sunday, Kyle made a remark that it was the first time in a long time that we sat down for a Sunday meal.

As you know around here, Sunday nights are usually pizza nights. We’ve been making homemade pizza for quite some time, but occasionally pick up a fresh ready-to-bake pizza or order delivery. Pizza is generally a meal we eat on the couch while binging out to the latest Netflix addiction. It’s kind of become a Sunday tradition.

The last time we sat down for a meal on a Sunday? Can’t even remember!

In any case, after I grocery shopped and began Sunday food prep, I realized we had some steaks in the freezer that needed cooking. I wasn’t craving pizza (I must have had some weird fever that day) and I know Kyle will never turn down a steak dinner. So, I busted out my recipe notes and whipped up a batch of creamy broccoli mushroom couscous to serve as a side!

Steaks are always paired with something ‘carby’ in my book. I mean, steak and potatoes is a normal thing, right? Although a batch of roasted red potatoes would have been fabulous, this broccoli mushroom couscous was just as grand.

So… I didn’t exactly measure out what the servings were for this recipe. But I’d say it could easily be split into three servings to serve as a decent sized side dish.

This recipe could be made just as easily with quinoa or brown rice. Although I haven’t tried it, I believe it’d be just as good.

Do you have any Sunday night traditions? Do you love steak?
