    Steps

    • 1

      When ready to cook, set the grill temperature to 325℉ and preheat.
    • 2

      On the stove-top, pre-heat a Dutch oven. Chop meat and generously season on all sides with salt and pepper.
    • 3

      Add olive oil to Dutch oven and brown beef on all sides, working in two batches as not to crowd the pan.
    • 4

      After browning the meat, add beer to the Dutch oven and cover until it comes to a boil.
    • 5

      In a separate pan on the stovetop, add olive oil, onion and garlic and sauté until slightly browned and translucent. Add peppers and cook for about 10 minutes or until they begin to soften.
    • 6

      Add the onions and peppers to the meat and beer mixture. Then add the beans, tomatoes, chipotle peppers and seasoning. Cover with lid and let come to a simmer.
    • 7

      Transfer the Dutch over to the Traeger grill and cook at 325℉ uncovered, for 3 hours or until the beef is extremely tender.
