Expert Tips

To broil, place kabobs on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide.

Light-colored sesame oil has a mild flavor that’s nice for salads and sautéing. Dark sesame oil has a robust flavor and aroma; use this deep brown oil like we have in our kabob recipe, to add a distinctive Asian accent. Look for sesame oil in the Asian foods section of the supermarket.

If you prefer your beef well done, thread the beef and the shrimp on separate skewers and grill the beef kabobs a bit longer.
