It sounds fancy but all you’re doing when deglazing is adding liquid to bring out the flavors from the glaze left behind from sautéing something in oil or butter.

I thought veal would go well with the mushrooms and then I wondered what sort of carb I should choose, and buttery couscous came to mind. When I finished making the dish I noticed that it resembled my Moroccan beef stew which tastes just as amazing as this hearty yet healthy dish, but I’ll save that recipe for another day.
- Finely chopped cilantro
- Blood orange juice
- Long pepper
- Chopped garlic
- Chicken Broth
- Chop mushrooms and sauté in butter until there is a nice brown glaze.
- Deglaze the mushrooms by adding freshly squeezed blood orange juice to the pan.
- Season veal strips with salt and long pepper then lightly pan fry in extra virgin olive oil.
- Sweat chopped garlic in butter for 30 secs. before adding in the couscous.
- Continuously stir the couscous in the garlic butter for a minute before adding in the chicken broth.
- Cook for 15 mins.
