  14. You will have 2 or 3 double skewers, depending on the length of your skewers.
  15. Cook on grill for about 20 minutes-you want the meat well browned and a little crusty.
  16. Meanwhile in a medium saucepan over high heat bring 3/4 cup water, rice, tomato sauce and remaining salt to a boil.
  17. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes-check to make sure rice isn't sticking.
