Algerian Beef

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Mike 2

Highly seasoned beef pairs with kidney beans and hominy in this Latin-inspired dish. Hominy is corn that has been soaked in lime or lye. The result is a versatile grain with a chewy texture and a very light, smoky-sour flavor.

Very good, I had some extra hominy I needed to use up, and I'm glad I chose this recipe for it! I used 3/4 C. chicken broth instead of the 1 C. water, and ground turkey instead of the beef. We ate it over egg noodles with sour cream and it was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté ground beef, onion, green bell pepper and garlic until vegetables are tender and beef is browned, about 6 minutes; drain.
  2. Stir in kidney beans, hominy, salt, basil, pepper, sugar, oregano and red pepper flakes.
  3. For a soup consistency, similar to Mexican Pozole, add up to 2 cups water* until desired consistency is reached.
  4. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Serve warm over rice or pasta.
  5. *NOTE:Without adding the water, meat mixture can be used as an empanada filling.
