  1. In a bowl, mix the shallots, white wine, garlic, Dijon mustard, cider vinegar, thyme, and bay leaves. Add pepper. Use this sauce to marinate the flank in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  3. In a very hot pan, seize the flank pieces in 5 ml of olive oil for two minutes on each side. Add salt.
  4. On a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, add the cherry tomatoes, cover them with 5 ml of olive oil, as well as salt and pepper. Put the flank on the same baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes for medium-rare, and 20 minutes for well-done.
  5. In a saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil, and then add the cauliflower as well as salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes before adding the couscous. Turn off the heat, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and green onions and mix well. Keep warm.
  6. Add the asparagus on the baking sheet 5 minutes before the flank is ready. Add 5 ml of olive oil on the asparagus, as well as salt and pepper.
  7. Once the flank is cooked, take it out of the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes, covered with aluminum paper.
  8. To serve, cut thin slices of flank, and garnish with couscous and vegetables.

Bon appétit!
