1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup cilantro
1 can (15 ounce) stewed tomatoes
2 ounces tomato paste
1 can (1 lb. 13 ounce) hominy
- In a large pot, heat oil. Saute beef.
- Add onion, garlic, salt, pepper, cilantro, and enough water to cover the meat. Cover pot and cook over low heat until meat is tender.
- Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Continue cooking for about 20 minutes.
