Brown Rice, Steak & Feta Bowl w/Tahini Cilantro Dressing

Last week I came home to my brother’s apartment from a really, really long day of meetings. It was late, I had an early morning run planned and I didn’t feel like going out. So we did what NYers do best. We got delivery from a local pita place. I wasn’t expecting much from my brown rice bowl, but I devoured it. Brown rice, steak and feta, vegetables and golden raisins. It was healthy and filling and interesting. Exactly what I needed to end my long day and fuel my morning workout.

So of course I came home and recreated it. I know there was some kind of green sauce on the side, but I couldn’t remember what it was supposed to be. I improvised and made a tangy Tahini and Cilantro dressing which complimented the earthy brown rice and sweet golden raisins. This is one of those dishes where you think – do these things really go together? Let me assure you that they do. It’s one magical bowl of goodness.
