Pomegranate-Glazed Shish Kebabs

I recently acquired a Weight Watchers cookbook so we can try some easy and healthy recipes for weeknight dinners. These kebabs were very quick and easy to make and also very tasty and filling. Its a great way to incorporate a variety of veggies.

WW Pomegranate-Glazed Shish Kebabs

1/4 cup low sodium low fat chicken broth
2 Tbsp pomegranate molasses (this part takes a long time to make and needs to be done in advance)
1 tsp salt
1 lb boneless sirloin, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
4 mushrooms halved or 1 portobello mushroom cut into 8 pieces
1 green or red bell pepper, cut into 8 pieces
1 red onion, cut into 8 pieces
1 zucchini, cut into 8 pieces

  • Make pomegranate molasses if it cannot be purchased at the store (click link for recipe)

  • Spray a broiler rack with Pam and preheat the broiler.

  • Combine broth, molasses, and salt in a small bowl.

  • Thread 4 skewers with veggies, mushrooms, and meat.

  • Place skewers on the broiler pan and brush with half the broth mixture.

  • Place broiler pan under broiler and broil for 4 minutes.

  • Then turn and brush with remaining broth mixture and broil for an additional 5-6 minutes.
