How to cook couscous is a question that some of my friends have asked me several times. The dish is a traditional bread made from wheat and broken grains and the answer they are always seeking is how to improve the taste. They want it to have more flavor, but they don’t want to pay extra for it. My suggestion would be to season the fluff with salt and pepper before you assemble the meal. This will help the texture to be more like that of a barley meal.
This easy-to-make recipe comes from an old French book written by Roger Pellot de Loire. This is one of the classic recipes from that time that is still used today. It has been said that this meal took forty minutes to prepare. The cooking time can vary depending on the size of the cooker you are using and the type of meat you are making. Typically, a small pot and a small piece of beef or pork were used in this recipe. You could also use a goose or a turkey but the only difference is that the meats were cooked a bit slower.
The recipe called for one quart of water with two tablespoons of rock salt, four ounces of dry mustard, four ounces of chopped onions, three quarters of a cup of chopped celery, four eggs, one tablespoon of dried thyme, and one-quarter teaspoon of ground black pepper. If the mortar and the baking soda that were specified in the first step were not available then using a cup of flour, a tablespoon of sugar, and a quarter teaspoon of rock salt was used instead. These ingredients were combined and then the meal was placed in the oven. When the timer ring was triggered, the pot of stew was put in the low position and the lid was closed. It was brought back to the main burner where the oven was opened and the meal was baked at the recommended temperature. The process was repeated until the desired result was achieved.
Knowing how to cook couscous can help you save time when making it on a weekly basis. This is because you know ahead of time how long the dishes should be cooked. Knowing how long they should be cooked can also help you decide how much to put in the sauce. In most recipes there is a recommended amount of sauce that should be added but in every cooking situation this is variable.
