    1. To make the feta sauce, stir together feta, yogurt, lemon juice and lemon zest in a small bowl. Add enough water to thin to desired consistency.
    2. To prepare the couscous, bring stock to the boil in a medium saucepan. Add couscous. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until couscous is tender and stock is absorbed, 8 to 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Add pomegranate seeds, pistachios, mint and baharat. Toss to combine.
    3. Preheat an outdoor barbecue. Sprinkle steak cubes with baharat; toss to coat. Thread steak, red pepper, tomatoes, onion and mushrooms onto eight metal skewers (or bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water at least 30 minutes).
    4. Barbecue kebabs, turning once or twice, until vegetables are tender and meat is just pink in centre, or until desired doneness, 8 to 12 minutes. Serve kebabs with couscous and feta sauce on the side.
