Mediterranean Rice

Grilling season is upon us, and this savory rice dish is the perfect accompaniment to a great grilled steak or kebab. Bright citrus, red onions and red/green peppers make this rice mouthwatering!

Serves: 4-6

1/2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 3/4 cups beef stock
juice of one lemon
1 cup white rice
1/4 cup of each: diced green pepper, red pepper, red onion
Kosher salt/pepper

Heat butter and oil and saute onion and peppers for one minute. Add rice and stir for another minute until rice is coated. Add stock and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper (be cautious on the salt if you use regular beef stock and not reduced-sodium!) Cover, reduce heat and simmer on low for about 20 minutes or until rice is fluffy and all of the liquid has evaporated. I serve this with my grilled chicken kebabs...I'll definitely share that recipe soon!
