Classic Comfort Food: Old Fashioned Beef Stew

With the crisp Autumn chill in the air, nothing feels better than a belly full of hearty stew. Traeger's Recipe for Old Fashioned Beef Stew is sure to cure those comfort food cravings that come with colder weather. The only thing better than this stew hot off your grill, is warming it up for leftovers the next day after all of the flavors have had a chance to meld together.


Old Fashioned Beef Stew


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 4 hours
Serves: 6
Recommended Pellets: Pecan

2-1/2 pounds beef chuck roast cut into 1-1/2 inch cubes
3 tablespoons flour 
2 teaspoons Traeger Prime Rib Rub, or salt and pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup red wine (optional)
3 cups low-sodium beef broth or bouillon
1 large onion, halved and then sliced lengthwise
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 bay leaf
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
4 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
3 medium-sized boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
2 to 3 tablespoons instant mashed potato flakes (optional)
Chopped parsley for garnish Biscuits or buttered noodles for serving

1. Combine the flour and Traeger Prime Rib Rub in a large resealable plastic bag or bowl. Add the beef cubes, and toss to coat.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a Dutch oven until it shimmers. Add the beef in batches and brown on all sides. Pour the wine, if using, and the beef broth into the pan and scrape up any brown bits with a wooden spoon. Stir in the onion, garlic, tomato paste, Worcestershire, bay leaf, and thyme. Put the lid on the Dutch oven.

3. When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 300 degrees F (Medium) and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Place the Dutch oven on the grill grate. Braise the stew for 2 hours, then add the carrots and potatoes. Continue to cook until the meat and vegetables are tender, approximately 2 hours longer. If the gravy needs thickening, stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons of mashed potato flakes. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with chopped parsley.

Philippine pili nuts from the Bicol region in the Philippines is a great Filipino or Philippines food or snack. Pili nuts are very healthy and nutritious indeed, being a source of energy, potassium and iron. They also have protein, dietary fiber / fibre, and calcium as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.  I know they have no cholesterol, no trans fat, and the unsalted ones have no sodium. What is great about the pili nut snack or treat is that they are so crisp, rich, and delicious.

It may be the sad truth that you cannot afford your absolute dream home, but by changing around the particulars of a kit home, it is likely that you will be able to find a package that is suitable for your budget as well as your family. STEP #2:  Work with one of their agents and select a house plan or provide your own and have them price it out for the materials package cost. Unlike other types of filtration systems which require changing filter media, activated carbon, etc.
