Electric Skillet Couscous

Author Eric Samuelson (Eat Like No One Else)


  • 1 cup Israeli Couscous or large couscous
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil I used grapeseed
  • 10 ounces hot water
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • any other seasonings you like suggestions: onion, garlic, fresh sage


  • Heat your skillet up to medium heat, around 275 degrees.
  • Add a tablespoon of cooking oil. When hot add the couscous.
  • Stir every so often until the couscous is browned, not burned. If it's browning too quickly turn down the heat.
  • Add the hot water. Add salt and pepper to taste and any other seasonings you like.
  • Turn down to low or 200 degrees and cover.
  • Allow to cook for about 6-8 minutes. All the water should be absorbed.
  • Taste to see if it's done. If not add a bit more water and repeat process until it's done.
