Boneless sirloin steak: Sirloin is the best cut for shrimp and steak kabobs because it’s less fatty and usually thinner, meaning that it cooks more quickly and doesn’t dry out.
Raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined: If you use frozen shrimp, defrost them thoroughly before cooking. Do this either by putting frozen shrimp in the refrigerator overnight or submerging them, still wrapped, in cold water for 20 minutes or until all the ice has gone.
Olive oil: Olive oil is the best choice because it has a low smoke point and a delicious taste. It can also add moisture to your steak.
Steak seasoning: Available in most grocery stores, the sweet and smoky flavor of steak seasoning compliments shrimp and steak beautifully. If you can’t find steak seasoning, you can make your own by combining paprika, salt, pepper, sugar, cumin, garlic, onion, and oregano.
