Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean beef, cubed

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 1 can (15 ounces) stewed tomatoes

  • 2 ounces tomato paste

  • 1 can (1 pound, 13 ounces) hominy

Directions

In a large pot, heat olive oil. Add beef and sauté.

Add onion, garlic, salt, pepper, cilantro, and enough water to cover meat. Stir to mix ingredients evenly. Cover pot and cook over low heat until meat is tender.

Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Continue cooking for about 20 minutes.

Add hominy and continue cooking an additional 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. If too thick, add water for desired consistency.
