{Beef and Hominy Stew}

I am usually not a stew person. But this is really good and hearty. Plus its made in a crock pot which makes it simple. The hominy gave it great texture and flavor. Perfect meal for a cold fall day.

1 large onion, chopped
2 pounds round steak cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 tsp salt
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped
3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
3 ribs of celery, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes with chilies
1 cup beef broth
2 Tbs corn starch
1 15 oz can hominy, drained and rinsed
Place onion in the bottom of a crock pot, add beef. Season with salt. Add green pepper, carrots, celery, and garlic. Pour tomatoes and 3/4 cups of broth over the top
cover and cook on low for 8 hours
Mix cornstarch with remaining 1/4 cup of broth until smooth. Stir into crock pot during the last 15 minutes of cooking, add hominy. Serve.
