1 to 1 1/2 lb round steak, fat removed and cut into cubes
2 tsp canola oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 can (approx 1 lb) hominy
1 can 14.5-oz) Mexican-style diced tomatoes
2 large carrots, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
1 large red or green bell pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup water
In a medium bowl combine the salt, cumin, and chili powder. Add the cubed beef to the mixture and toss to coat.
Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add the beef cubes and cook, turning to cook both sides, until lightly browned. Remove meat from the skillet to a slow cooker or crockpot.
Add the beef broth to the skillet; bring to a boil at medium heat, scraping browned bits from the skillet. Pour the broth into the cooker over the beef. Stir the hominy, tomatoes, bell pepper, carrots, onion, garlic, and water into the cooker. Cover the cooker and cook 4 to 6 hours on high or 8-12 hours on low until the beef is tender.
