Coffee-Rubbed Beef Brisket With Parsley Couscous

Fragrant and boldly spiced, Moroccan beef brisket makes great bedfellows with parsley-flecked couscous.[Photograph: Jennifer Olvera]

Note: Both preserved lemons and ras el hanout are available on Amazon and at Williams-Sonoma as well as at Middle Eastern grocers. If you can't get your hands on ras el hanout, you can make your own. However, like curry, it contains a myriad of ingredients. For a pared-down version, combine equal parts cumin, ginger, black pepper, and salt, along with half as much ground coriander, cayenne, allspice, ground cloves, turmeric, and cinnamon.
