I found this in a Parade Magazine. Great Sides for this are: Canned or homemade Pinto, Black or Ranch- Style Beans. Maybe a side salad,Too!

How to Make Santa Maria-Style Barbeque


  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Add meat, marinate for several hrs. Overnight is the best if you want it to absorb the spices and have an extra zing!
  2. Heat Grill (a charcoal grill stocked oak charcoal is best, but a gas grill works well, too!)
  3. Wipe excess marinade from meat. Apply meat seasoning.
  4. Grill steak over medium until cooked to taste, usually 25-30 mins for med. rare, temp. should be 145 degrees F.
  5. Let meat rest for 5-10 mins. Slice very thin. Serve with beans, toasted bread and a salad.
