A holiday BBQ at Eeden Vineyards

Petrus Bekker at Eeden Vineyards talks about the holidays: our holiday tradition is to get as many family members and friends together and enjoy good food, wine, and conversation.

We enjoy a barbecue every chance we get, even in winter when it is not raining…

Here is our recipe for a Steak Barbecue


4-5 lbs beef loin tri-tip roast (fat trimmed), cut to 1 inch thick strips.


1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Eeden red wine
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup virgin olive oil
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
1 heaping tbsp chopped garlic

Set grill on high, pre-heat and clean grill. Grill steak (covered) about 3 minutes on one side. Flip around, brush with remaining marinade.

Grill about 3 minutes in the other side. Flip around and brush with marinade.

Grill for about 1 more minute on each side. The steak should now be done to medium-rare or medium. If you want your steak more done, flip around one more time. Don’t overcook!
