This spicy beef dish is bursting with bold flavors for a filling and delicious dinner. The beef is cooked with onion and bamboo shoots and then dressed with a spicy soy sauce and red wine sauce. The meat is served alongside couscous, which gets a beautiful golden color from the addition of saffron. In addition to the saffron, the couscous is also flavored with lemon and parsley, both of which are perfect accents to the beef.
