Cook up a tasty bit of ancient history in your kitchen with this traditional pre-Columbian stew from Mexico originally made by the Aztecs.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs lean beef, cubed
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 2 oz 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.
