Chef John's Santa Maria-Style Beans
February 09, 2017

OMG OMG OMG OMG! I've had plenty of Santa Maria BBQ, but the beans were never much to write home about. This time, I was making the tri tip and needed the beans to go with it. I followed the recipe exactly EXCEPT that I made my beans in the pressure cooker, no soaking in advance. The sauce I made the same (though I did use smoked paprika instead of regular). UNBELIEVABLY good! Had to order more pinquito beans just so I could makes sure to have them on deck at all times!
