The ultimate winter stew with the all-important Cattlemen’s BBQ twist to perfectly caramelize the beef chunks and create layers upon layers of rich, tangy flavour. Watch DJ BBQ cook up this winter warmer outdoors on Instagram @djbbq
Setup a kettle smoker with a little smoking wood, one third coal bed. You will need a large casserole pot.
Marinade the beef in Cattlemen’s sauce for half an hour. Put onto smoke on the kettle grill for 20-30 minutes to build up the cattlemen's caramelisation. Add in a little smoking wood to give you that smoky flavour.
While the beef chunks are smoking, prepare your veg and soften in your pot for a few minutes. Soften the veg in the pot along with the herbs for 5-10 minutes, add in the smoked beef along with the red wine, chopped tomatoes and stock.
Bring up to a simmer and slowly bubble away over the coal bed for 2-3 hours until the beef is tender. Check the seasoning and serve with some chunky sourdough bread.
Serve it straight up to save time or add small tweaks to create delicious signature dishes.
