Bends w/ vibrato are more of 2 bends combined.

bend up your 1 step then bend it another 1/2 or 1/4 step and then back down to the original 1 step bend.

Just takes a lot of practice to get bend vibratos to sound good.

Keep the neck in the V shape between your thumb and index finger
Brace your fretting hand against the neck
Use your first three fingers to fret the note and bend it
Keep it to a clean semitone or whole tone vibrato
Make sure you keep it in tune
Keep the vibrato in time with the music you're playing over
Start slow, then gradually practise it faster to taste
Try bending the note, letting it ring at the higher pitch for a bit, and then adding vibrato - you'll sound more professional than if you jump straight in to shaking it

You explained this so much better than I did.

This is really more difficult than it looks but start slow and make sure it's pitch perfect and you'll get it in no time.
