Susan made a batch of Santa Maria-style pinquito beans, and her husband Paul showed me the real way to do a barbecued tri-tip (on a custom-made barbecue pit in the middle of the house!) Watch the recipe video below and give it a try!
For recipe ingredients, please refer to the video.
If you have barbecued a tri-tip beef steak then it is only fair that you serve it with the classic side dish, the Santa Maria style beans. This bean side dish has all the right flavors, there is the wonderful smokiness of the bacon and ham, the piquant flavors of the spices and the sweet-sour flavor of the onions and tomatoes. No traditional Santa Maria Style Barbecue meal is complete without it.
