This pumpkin beef stew recipe is delicious, savory and guaranteed to warm you up.  The tender meat along with all the flavorful fall veggies make this the perfect hearty fall dish. The pumpkin flavor is very subtle.  It blends in perfectly with the potatoes and carrots and beefy flavor from the chuck roast.  Warm up the crowd with the stew after a game or some hard yard work and watch as the trees around turn colors.

Smoke the beef.

Pumpkin Beef Stew Ingredients

Start off by seasoning the chuck roast with basic salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder.  I used a premixed spice by Feges BBQ. Don’t be scared to go heavy on the seasoning, it’s a big piece of meat.

Time to get the grill going.  Heat up the Big Green Egg to 250 degrees indirect heat.  Once the temperature is reached, throw the seasoned chuck roast directly on the grates for about 2 hours.

Add in the Pumpkin!

Chopped Pumpkin

While the chuck roast is on the grill, it’s time to prep the veggies. Chop up 1/2 a small pumpkin, potatoes, carrots and slice an onion.  Throw the veggies into a dutch oven.

Tip: I highly recommend purchasing a pre-chopped pumpkin if you can. They are not easy to chop up.  You need time, a really sharp knife and strength.  Also be careful for those fingers!

Next, transfer the grilled beef over the veggies into the dutch oven.  Add slow cooker pot roast seasoning packet, minced garlic, dried oregano, fresh thyme leaves and beef stock. Let it all cook for another 3 hours or until the beef is nice and tender.
