Onion, garlic and tomato create the base in this dish to carry the flavours, but the sweetness, acidity and the kick from the bourbon and cola allow the beef to shine - it is so deliciously beefy, rich and moreish. Add this fall-apart, braised, saucy beef to your favourite meals such as tacos, nachos, pie fillings or even enjoy it by itself in soft buns.

 1.20 kg kilogram beef chuck steaks, approximately 2.5cm thick
 3 tbsp tablespoons olive oil, divided
 10 ½ tsp teaspoons sea salt, divided
 2 tsp teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, divided
 1 brown onion, sliced
 2 cloves garlic, chopped
 2 long red chillies, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish
 500 ml millilitres beef stock
 1 g can finely chopped tomatoes
 2 ml cans Wild Turkey 101 Premium Blend Bourbon Whiskey & Cola (or an alternate Cola & Bourbon premix)
1

Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over high heat (250°C-290°C) with a large Weber Ware casserole dish.

2

While the barbecue is preheating, lightly coat the beef chuck steaks with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with 1 teaspoon of the salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, sliced onion, chopped garlic and finely chopped chillies to the preheated casserole dish.

3

Brush the cooking grills clean with a wire brush. Grill the steak over direct high heat, with the lid closed, for 2 minutes per side, just long enough for the steak to have caramelised grill marks. While the steak is cooking, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, brown onion, garlic and chillies to the casserole dish. Sautee for 4 minutes, stirring as needed with a silicone spatula.

4

Remove the steak from the cooking grills and place onto a chopping board. Cut the steak into approximately 3cm chunks.

5

Prepare the barbecue for indirect cooking over medium heat (190°C-230°C). Move your casserole dish to an indirect zone of the barbecue, you may need to turn a burner off, refer to your barbecue’s handbook for setting information. Add the beef stock, tin tomatoes, 2 cans of cola & bourbon whiskey, remaining salt and pepper to the casserole dish. Place the lid onto the dish and cook over indirect medium heat for 2 hours.

6

After 2 hours, remove the lid from the casserole dish, give it a stir and continue to cook for a further 2 hours (without the casserole dish lid) or until the beef is tender and the liquid has reduced to a gravy consistency.

7

Pour the entire contents of the casserole dish into a serving dish. Shred the meat with two forks. Garnish with sliced red chilli, serve immediately and enjoy.
