Recipe Ingredients for Beef Kebabs and Creamy Brown Rice

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/3 pound flank steak, cubed
1/2 large zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch-thick half-moons
8 cherry or grape tomatoes
1/8 tsp Vegetable oil, cooking spray
1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/6 cup brown rice, cooked (about 1/2 cup)
2 teaspoons fat free sour cream
1 teaspoon light Parmesan cheese, grated

Recipe Directions for Beef Kebabs and Creamy Brown Rice

Combine cilantro, garlic, tomato paste, lemon zest and 2 tbsp water in a large resealable plastic bag. Thread beef cubes onto skewers alternating with zucchini and tomatoes. Place kebabs in bag; close and shake. Marinate 1 hour or up to 10 hours in refrigerator. Heat a small grill pan, skillet or grill over high heat. Coat kebabs with a thin layer of cooking spray and place on pan. Grill, turning occasionally, until vegetables are soft and meat browns on the outside and is slightly pink on the inside, 10 to 12 minutes. Place broth, lemon juice, sugar, salt, paprika and pepper in a microwave-safe glass bowl. Microwave until mixture is hot, about 40 seconds. Add rice; stir well. Microwave until rice absorbs liquid, 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly stir in sour cream and Parmesan. Serve rice with kebabs.
