Ingredients

For the Hearty Lamb Stew

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 Pounds lamb, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 4 Cloves garlic, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 Cup tomato paste
  • 2 Cups beef stock
  • 12 Ounces beer (preferably stout)
  • 2 Teaspoons thyme, dried
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 3 Large carrots, diced
  • 1 Large turnip, diced
  • 2 Cups pearl onions, diced

Directions

For the Hearty Lamb Stew

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 450 degrees Fahrenheit and preheat with the lid closed (10-15 minutes).

Season the lamb with the salt and pepper. Heat 2 Tbsp. of oil in a Dutch Oven that has been preheated for 10-15 mins.

Cook the lamb chunks in the Dutch Oven, one portion at a time, ensuring that the lamb is spread over one layer, with no overcrowding. Brown all sides for 6-8 minutes before moving on to the next portion, until all the lamb is evenly browned.

Return all the lamb to the Dutch Oven, add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook for 1 minute. Add Beef Stock, Beer, Thyme, Bay Leaves, Salt, and Pepper. Cook on high.

While meat is cooking, brown remaining vegetables. Add vegetables to pot, and cook 1 hour, or until tender. Serve hot with mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
