Mexican Beef Stew
© Crystal Miller

This is a great tasting crockpot recipe I am sure your family will enjoy!

3/4 pound lean beef stew meat, or an inexpensive piece of beef roast-- cut into 3/4 " cubes
½ large onion -- chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced or a large spoonful of chopped garlic from a jar
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1- 15 oz. can whole-kernel corn -- undrained
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves -- crushed
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal

Put all the above ingredients into your crockpot except the cornmeal. Cook on low for about 8 hours or until the meat is tender. Turn the crockpot to high and stir the cornmeal in and allow to cook and thicken for about 25 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread or even rice.

Good Morning Sandra.This sounds so good,I'm asking hubby to make it on the weekend.

Barb said...

Thank goodness I stopped by, Sandra. I swear, I thought, "Wow! She's a day early!" All day long I've thought this was Wednesday. Good grief.

Your Mexican soup sounds wonderful.

This is another recipe to put on my list of "To Make" meals.

Renee said...

This looks so good! I think we'll be having this tomorrow. Hope you're having a great week.

Michele said...

Perfect Timing! I am attending a chili feed / get together for a group I am part of this weekend. This sounds just different enough from all the standard regular dishes that will be making an appearance. Yeah, I know it is not a chili, but this group won't care! I am going to put it together for the event, but maybe spice it up a bit more.

I really need to get my crockpot out more often!!

Lorie said...

This sounds really good!! Can't wait to try it...

Thanks so much for the tip! I had a feelings it would be something along those lines. The recipe is growing on me as I finish the batch off, so I am willing to give it another try...especially since it is so inexpensive once you have already purchased the spices.

Thanks again and I'll let you know how it goes. May be a few weeks, but I should be around :)
