Brown Basmati Rice Pilaf with Spiced Beef and Green Beans

The Persian dish known as loobia polow, or green beans and rice, served as the inspiration for this recipe. White basmati rice would be the classic choice, but we opted for brown basmati. The grains hold up well to pressure cooking and their nutty flavor pairs well with the earthy spices and the sweetness from the golden raisins. This is a one-pot meal, though a salad of tomatoes and cucumbers with a simple lemon and olive oil vinaigrette would be a nice accompaniment, as would plain yogurt for dolloping on the pilaf.

Tip

Don't use extra-lean ground beef. The small amount of fat from 85 percent lean ground beef adds richness to the dish and also carries flavor so the spicy, sweet and herbal notes taste fuller and more complex.
