I love making kebobs this time of year, especially for Memorial Day. It’s the beginning of summer, and the kids are out of school. The combination of sirloin steak and vegetables are awesome, and this recipe will work with chicken, shrimp or all of the above. If you don’t have time to make this simple marinade, I love Thomas Marinade (found at Fresh Market) and Moore’s Marinade. Also, most groceries have prepared kebobs in the meat section to simplify your life even more. Enjoy hanging outside and happy Memorial Day!
