Peppered Stout Beef with a twist

Mattman3969Mattman3969 Posts: 7,998
I bought a 3.8lb chuck roast on Fri night with the thoughts of cooking the Peppered Stout Beef that Hap has been posting about. I wasn't goin to buy a 6 pack of Guiness ( don't drink dark beer) and Krogers didn't sell singles, no big deal cause my neighbor had given me a Kentucky Bourbon Ale. This is an Ale that is aged in Woodferd Bottles and very good on tap at room temp but actually sucks from a bottle. First Twist. I used sea salt and about half the pepper that I thought it needed which was a good thing cause the SWMBO was looking at the recipe on my iPad today after the cooking had began and sad she wouldn't eat anything with that much pepper. Whew Rubbed and ready image After 3hrs at about 275 grid temp and at 160 ready to merge wit da fixins image A quick shot of the merger before I foiled image I bumped the temp up to 350 and let it go I checked to see if it would pull at 212 and it was a big negative. Finally at 225 it was able to be pulled so I pulled, foiled and rested. Here is the next twist from he recipe - SWMBO didn't want everything all mixed up so I let the onions and peppers keep on gettin happy till most of the juice was rendered down image image She made her sandwich with no onion or peppers but added shredded mozzarella image And mine with all the fixins image

    Looks good! Just curious, did SWMBO at least try the onions/peppers/etc mix? I'm not the biggest fan of bell peppers but I found there was so much flavor in the veggies that I can't lay off of them. More for you I guess! :D

    @R2Egg2Q - that's a negative. She will eat the red & yellow peppers but no way no chance on the greens

    I am liking the way she did the reduction on the veggies, independent of the protein. So then por favor, why did she not have it? But, regardless, I like the collaborative approach. I wish I had the luxury of that and am jealous. :(

    Looks too good and am gonna do this tomorrow. Cant wait.

    @Aviator-My cooks have to mutual or atleast 70/30 mutual. Eggin is fun enough that I don't mind meeting in the middle for certain kinda cook. I always tell her if she would stay out of the kitchen while I was cookin she would like more of my cooks cuz she wouldn't know what the ingredients were :D :D
