Thread: NAVAJO BEEF & CHILI

  1. #1

    Default

    This is a new recipe I found at members.aol.com, and I am trying for the first time today. I have no idea how it will come out, but it looks good to me.

    3/4 pound lean beef stew meat cut into 3/4" cubes

    1 large onion
    2 large cloves garlic-minced
    1 14.5 ounce can ready cut tomatoes with juice
    1 7oz. can diced green chiles-drained
    1 8.5 oz. can mexican who kernel corn, undrained
    1 1/2 tsp. drien oregano
    1 tsp. ground cumin
    1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
    2 T. yellow cornmeal

    Combine all ingreds, except cornmeal, in a 3.5 quart slow cooker, mixing well. Cover and cook on low 7 - 8 hours.

    Turn control to High. Stir in cornmeal. Cover and cook on high 20-25 minutes.

    Serves 4. WW Points - 5 per serving

    Note: I always check points on every recipe I make, even if they are posted. But because I have to leave for my office soon, and I wanted to get this posted now, I have not checked the points on this.

    I will check back in later tonight to let you know how this came out.

    later - Dawna

    Well the Navajo Beef slow cooker meal was great. My family, including skinny pickey 17 year old, gave it 10 points. Also, I went over the point count and did figure it as 20 points for the entire recipe or 5 points for each of four generous servings.

    I've already been asked to make it again soon.

    One change I made was I increased the corn meal to 3 tablespoons, at the end of the recipe. When I figured out the points for 2 T. it was the same (2 points for 2 T. or 3 T.). Anyway this was one great meal.

    later - Dawna

    Hi Morgan - One tip for you on the cornmeal, and something I learned the hard way, is that once opened, it gets stale very quickly, therefore, I keep it in the back of my fridg.

    Bon Appetit -

    I'd like to try this recipe - I just have one question...what is mexican whole kernal corn? If I can't find a can marked "mexican whole kernal corn" can I just use regular canned corn?

    Mexican corn is made by green giant, and it is sold in the supermarkets where I am. By all means, use the regular canned corn. I don't think it will make any difference.

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was very good.....except that when I assembled this at 4:55am, in my sleepyness and my rush to get going to work, I ignored the part about draining the chilis. And....I had grabbed one can of chopped chilis, and one can of chopped jalapenos. 4 oz each can, close to the 7 oz called for. That is one spicy dish! And I forgot to put in the cornmeal. Next time I will pay attention to the directions. You do get a generous portion.

    Thankyou for the cornmeal tip. I have it cooking right now and it smells good [img]smile.gif[/img] I hope it's not too spicy! I've never used green chiles before, they were hard to find, this tiny little yellow can, only 5 oz can's here. I'm going to add the 3 tbsp of cornmeal like you did, CAN'T WAIT! Yummy

    I also have this cooking. I didn't realize there was yellow and white cornmeal and just wrote cornmeal on my list. Fortunately I got the yellow cornmeal. It smells delicious [img]smile.gif[/img]

    you listed an onion on there, but not sure what to do with it...chop it? slice it? leave it whole?

    Mexican corn is also called mexi-corn and is whole kernel corn with red and green peppers in it. Also made by other companys and called corn and peppers. Pretty easy to find.


    Advice anyone??

    Thanks!!!!!!!

    I made this for dinner tonight. Went lite on the chilis - only used a 4 oz can, but came out VERY good!! I kept the three other protions and single packaged them for the freezer. (hubby won't eat anything stew or soup like, so it's just for me)

    My two-year old even liked it, but then he likes things that are a little spicy, oddly enough. (of course, while I was pregnant with him I wanted SPICY foods...especially indian. The hotter the better. His love of spice must have started in the womb!) [img]smile.gif[/img]

    This is definitely a keeper!!

    Thank you!!!!!!!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Doesn't it always happen that there's always one ingredient that you are missing when you come upon a yummy recipe? :eek: One more trip to the market for corn meal........

    This is going to be my most favorite crockpot recipe! It was delicious! I too made it with diced jalapenos instead of diced green chili. I only used a 4 oz. can but it made it real spicy!Great recipe thanks! [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    I didn't have any stewbeef, so I used 1 lb ground
    round. It smells great! Hubby is making cornbread to go with.
