1 large onion, finely diced

4 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/2 tsp powdered cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground allspice

2 tsp dried oregano

2 tbsp Asian fish sauce

2-3 tbsp masa

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Hot sauce, to taste

Preparation

Add dried chilis to a large Dutch oven and cook on the stovetop over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until slightly darkened.

Remove chilis and place in a 2-quart microwave-safe bowl. Add half of the chicken stock to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 5 minutes.

Remove from microwave and transfer chilis and liquid to blender. Blend until smooth.

Season chuck steaks generously with salt and pepper. Heat oil in the base of Dutch oven over high heat.

Add chuck steaks in a single layer, doing in 2 batches if needed. Cook without moving until deeply browned. Flip steaks and brown second side.

Transfer steaks to a cutting board and cut seared steaks into 1-inch chunks.

Keeping the heat on high, add onions to Dutch oven and cook, stirring frequently until translucent.

Add garlic, cinnamon, cumin, allspice, and oregano, and cook, stirring until fragrant.

Add all meat back into the pan along with chili puree and remaining quart of chicken stock. Stir to combine.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 250 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place Dutch oven in preheated grill with the lid of Dutch oven slightly off the side. Braise for 3 hours or until meat is very tender.

Remove from grill, stir in fish sauce, masa and apple cider vinegar. Add hot sauce and salt, to taste.

To serve, garnish with cilantro, chopped onions, scallions, grated cheese, avocado, and warm tortillas on side. Enjoy!

Amazing recipe
I started off with the traeger but it started smoking really bad and not getting up to the temperature so I went to the gas stove. I cooked it longer than the recipe but it came out really good. Besides trying to find all the ingredients this recipe is awesome. I’m making this in the future!
