Beef Stew With Smoked Vegetables
« Reply #-1 on: October 17, 2017, 01:29:06 PM »
We've been telling people for years that "If you can cook it on the stove or in an oven, you can cook it on a MAK!" Here's proof positive that is true.
“Tasty Tuesday” has arrived! One of our favorite fall dishes is vegetable/beef stew. Warming, hearty, stick-to-your ribs goodness. Any recipe you can cook on a stove or in an oven, you can duplicate on your MAK and this recipe is a perfect testament to that fact.  Let’s get started!
Serves: 4.

Ingredients:
2-3 lbs. chuck roast
3.5 cups beef broth
1 medium sized potato, peeled and cubed
2 medium sized parsnips, peeled and sliced
2 medium sized carrots, peeled and sliced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped and sautéed
1 TBSP. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste (we used MAK smoked salt and pepper)
2-3 quart cast iron pot or Dutch oven

Preparation:
Optional: before cutting up vegetables, smoke them for 30 minutes.
Start your MAK and set temperature at 450F. Allow grill to come to temperature. Sear both sides of the chuck roast, approximately 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from grill and allow roast to cool.
After searing meat, lower grill temperature to 275F. Sautee onions.
Peel and dice vegetables, place inside pot. Cut up meat into one inch sized chunks. Add broth, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, salt and pepper.  Gently combine all ingredients in the pot.
Place lid on pot and transfer to grill.

Cooking:
Allow stew to simmer on grill for approximately 3-3.5 hours. Check pot contents every hour to test level of softness of vegetables, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, remove from the grill and ladle into soup bowls. Serve with crusty French bread or rolls.

maybe I read the recipe wrong but after smoking the veggies for 30 minutes it seems like the rest of the cook on the Mak is with the lid on the pot.

To save pellets could it be finished in the oven??

You smoke the veggies first (I like Zig-Zag rolling papers myself), then you cut them up and put them into the pot with the other ingredients. The whole idea is to cook the entire meal on the MAK. With smoke and 250F temps, the grill is not using much in the way of pellet fuel. Pellets might even be cheaper than electricity. :-)
