Guam's BBQ Marinade for Beef, Chicken and Pork Spare Ribs

I am originally from Santa Maria, California, known in those parts for Santa Maria Style BBQ. Tri-tip is probably one of our most famous cuts that we use there. But it is not the original cut. Here is a web link for a little history on Santa Maria BBQ:

Anyway, when I moved to Guam in 1986, I was literally taken back by the delicious flavor of the island marinade. You have got to try this out.

Beef short ribs marinaded island style.

Here is the recipe:

1 cup of soy sauce (we use Kikkoman)
1 cup of vinegar, either white or apple cider
1 medium onion, sliced
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1-2 tablespoons of freshly minced ginger (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Allow your meat to marinade....the longer the better.

There are many variations, some will put a little sugar, but it is all about individual taste. It's all good!!!

I hope you try this out. I think you will enjoy something different.

Until next time....

I wish I had seen your blog a year ago. I am from Santa Maria also and lived in Guam for 13 months. I just moved back this past April. I love your recipes and will be using them back here in the states. My dad turned 80 in May and I did Guam fiesta food for his party. It turned out great.

Wow!! A Santa Marian on Guam. It feels good to talk to someone from my hometown. I am glad you like the blogsite. My other site is BBQGuam. There is a link on this site.

Please give your Dad a happy belated B-Day wish from me. He is about the same age as my mother.

If you have any other questions on Guam recipes or others, send me an email. The email link is on my profile.

Thanks for commenting Stacia and I hope you become a follower and also follow by email.

Take care, Rueben.
