My friends, Rob & April, permanent residents of Simi Valley, who already introduced me to 'Louisiane Express" that was a true Cajun eatery run by an older Cajun gentleman, Requiescat in Pace, suggested we trek on over to Greenacres for their BBQ. We didn't bother going inside to look at their raw cuts of meat nor their fresh fish, but headed straight to their outside enclosure that lines the front of the store along Los Angeles Avenue. Greenacres knows its marketing by putting up a tall rack of alluring bags of potato chips and other snack bags just before you approach the order counter. We resisted the temptation and started to look over the menu board that lines the back wall. I ordered the 1/2 rack of pork ribs for $8.95 and 1/2 lb of Tri Tip for about $6.95. The pork ribs were rather short but meaty and probably smoked in a dry rub. The meat was moist enough with a chewy texture. I looked at the meat, and could tell there was a light sign of a red smoke ring. However, my ribs here had an almost undetectable "old" taste that took the edge off the pork ribs. Maybe the uncooked ribs were stored in the freezer too long. The ribs weren't the messy, hot & spicy, dark brown sugar BBQ sauce enriched, succulent ribs found at the once iconic Phillip's BBQ in Leimert Park, but the ribs at Greenacres are probably the best you'll find in all of the Simi Valley. The Tri Tip was another matter. Beef can be a rather fickle meat. Cook it too long & too hot in the wrong way, and you get dry, leathery, dead piece of meat. Cook it too fast and if the meat is not already soft & tender like Ribeye or Filet Mignon, the meat becomes tough, chewy, and inedible. My guess that the Tri Tip here is marinated in a light fruit juice to gently tenderize it. Then it is placed in the BBQ smoker under low, slow heat to maintain moisture in the Tri Tip. The Tri Tip is cut into micro thin wide ribbons. Its almost like Technicolor X-ray tomography where each slice shows how the heat traveled through the meat. The outside is cooked brown but as you travel into the center, the meat starts to look rosier until the center is sunset red. The smoke is subtle yet all pervasive. The meat is moist, meaty, succulent with a nice chaw. The flavour of the Tri Tip is beefy with a touch of sweetness from the marinade. This is one great Tri Tip, and an excellent balance of flavour, texture, smoking technique, visuals. However, don't buy too much of it all at once thinking you'll eat it the next day since the beef changes into an "old flavour" that makes the Tri Tip lose much of its appeal. (I should know since I had some Tri Tip left over the next day.) At the time we were there on Saturday, January 18th at around 2pm, there were silver canister dispensers of 4 different flavours of BBQ sauce: 1) Polynesian was more like a Japanese Teriyaki sauce thickened with possibly corn starch. The main taste component seemed to be mostly Sho-yu (soy sauce) & sugar. This was the mildest of the BBQ sauces. 2) Original was slightly tangy/sweet from a possible addition of black pepper with a slight amount of heat. 3) Bold & Zesty was rather smokey/ sweet some kind of gastrique component coming into play at the end. 4) The BOSS was supposed to be Whiskey Habanero according to Rob, and was sweet, tomatoey, slow burning & a good kick of heat as you progressively kept using The BOSS. For chile heat wussies, The Boss, will kick AZZ. We got back to Rob & April's and were kindly offered a nice jammy Cabernet Sauvignon that was redolent of dried cherries, blackberries, smokiness that had enough tannins with good structure & gentle, balanced acids to tackle the heavy assault of pork & beef of our carnivore intensive meal. Until I explore more of the BBQ meats at Greenacres, my estimation would be 3+ Yelp stars for the present. PS Tried the toasted garlic bread whose spread was not unusual, but the bread itself was Rye which gave the garlic bread a very different, herbal taste from bland white bread.
Green Acres is a local meat and grocery store. They're best in the meat dept with a small grocery. Buy your BBQ ingredients here, you won't be sorry. They also have a side lunch area where you can get some great tritip sandwiches. Look for the BBQ with smoke billowing out onto the road. The staff pays personal attention to both the fresh produce and meat in stock. They're very happy to answer questions and make reccomendations too.
Best BBQ sandwiches in Simi Valley. There menu keeps getting larger and larger. Salads, burritos and more. Of course They have their great market inside with the best butcher shop in the area. Always love going there. Last time I was there, I preordered everything, actually had to change the order the same day. They were very accommodating and had the order ready and correct. While I was there to pick up the order, I happened to see them grilling a burger with a bun that had their famous garlic spread. Can't wait to come back to try it.
