Hi folks!

I'm going to bbq up some shell steaks tonight. I don't feel like making anything potato based to go with them. I think i'm settling on rice. Does anyone have any recipes that would herb up the rice to go with the bbq'd shells? I was going to add sauteed onion and garlic to it, and likely pepper but, if anyone has a recipe that specifically goes with steak, can you send it my way?

thanks!

Well, the soup idea is good. I can make it with beef stock, which i have frozen, instead of water. I always use water when making rice. Gotta re-look at that. So, if i make it with the stock, and sautee onions and garlic and give it a good dose of fresh black pepper, that will probably make it a great side with the steak. I was going to do baked potatoes but since i've finally got my cholesterol and BP down to very acceptable levels, i'm trying to stay away since I use WAY too much butter AND sour cream on them!

I have a couple that might interest you, although I am not sure if you would consider them steak friendly. You might at least get some ideas from of them. I particularly like the green chili recipe recipe.

Green Chili Rice

1 cup uncooked rice
2 cups chicken broth
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
1 small onion, diced
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
3 green onions, sliced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves

1. Combine rice, broth, chilies, onion, oregano, salt and cumin in a large saucepan.
2. Bring to boil, uncovered.
3. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed (about 20 minutes)
4. Stir in green onions and cilantro.

*************************************************************
Indian Spiced Rice

1/4 cup sliced green onions
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1 1/3 cups long grain rice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 2/3 cups water

1. Cook green onion in butter in a saucepan until tender but not brown.
2. Stir in rice, salt garam masala, red pepper and garlic.
3. Cook and stir over medium heat for 1 minute.
4. Add water.
5. Bring to boil.
6. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes; do not lift lid.
7. Remove saucepan from heat.
8. Let stand covered for 10 minutes.

*************************************************************
I usually serve this particular recipe with Asian chicken or pork kabobs or a sweet and sour dish, but you might find it interesting.

Sour Cherry Rice

3 cups basmati rice
4 tablespoons salt
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
1/2 lb butter (2 sticks)
3/4 teaspoon saffron, crushed finely into powder with pestle
3 cups sour cherry preserves
1 slice pita bread

1. Fill large pot with water; add 2 tablespoons salt and soak rice for two hours; drain.
2. In large nonstick pot, add 9 cups water, 2 tablespoons salt and pre-soaked rice; bring to boil stirring gently occasionally to prevent rice from sticking; cook until al dente; Drain.
3. Rinse rice with cold water, then shake colander to remove excess water; set aside.
4. In skillet, fry onion in 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter until golden; lower flame.
5. Add saffron and sour cherries to onions; simmer for 15 minutes, being careful not to burn.
6. Cover bottom of nonstick pot with olive oil.
7. Separate one piece of pita bread and place it on the bottom of pot.
8. Spoon thick layer of rice over pita bread; spoon layer of sour cherry preserves over rice, then alternate layers, forming a mound.
9. Poke holes in rice mixture with handle of spatula to allow steam to rise.
10. Mix until rice takes on color of preserves.
11. Melt remaining 11/2 sticks of butter (6 ounces); pour evenly over rice. (If juice from cherries gathers around edges of pot, skim off excess so tadiq at bottom won't be mushy.).
12. Cover with clean towel and put lid on.
13. Place pot on medium heat.
14. When you hear sizzling at the bottom (after about 5 minutes), bring down heat to low. Cook covered for 45 minutes to an hour.

I think the green chili one would be my fav (I KNOW my hubby would like it), although the Indian one looks good too! Thanks Karen!

I have a grilled fajita recipe that is marinated in beer, spices and cilantro and for some reason, that green chili rice always seems to pair up with it better then anything else.
