Curried Beef Kebabs With Brown Basmati Rice
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
8 ingredients
4 servings
Based on a recipe from Weight Watchers’ Momentum Cookbook. “Look for brown basmati rice at your supermarket. Although it takes about 20 minutes longer to cook than white basmati rice, its enticing nutty flavor, extra fiber, and appealing texture make it worth the extra time. This recipe works with the Simply Filling technique.” Per serving (2 skewers and ¾ cup rice): 435 Cal, 8 g Fat, 2 g Sat Fat, 0 g Trans Fat, 92 mg Chol, 1035 mg Sod, 46 g Carb, 2 g Fib, 42 g Prot, 39 mg Calc. The first time I made this I screwed up by tossing the oil and curry powder with the rice! It will be so much better as written by tossing with the meat and vegetables before skewering them. Also, I don't like this as well with beef; I will use either lamb or chicken; lamb would really give this some added flavor and is truer to its Middle Eastern roots.
