2 Sprinkle both sides of steak with seasonings and cook, turning once, for 3-4 minutes each side or until done to your liking. Transfer to a plate, cover with tinfoil to keep warm and set aside.
3 Place couscous in a large heatproof bowl. Add 1½ cups boiling water, cover and set aside for 5 minutes or until couscous has absorbed water. Use a fork to separate and fluff couscous grains. Add half the coriander.
4 Meanwhile, bring a medium-sized saucepan of water to the boil. Add beans and cook for 1 minute or until just tender. Refresh beans in cold water then drain well.
5 Cut steak in thin slices. Divide couscous among plates. Top with steak, grilled veges and beans.
6 Drizzle salad with balsamic dressing, garnish with remaining coriander and serve.
