Directions:


1. Preheat oven 350 degrees.


2. Heat a heavy stock pot over medium heat and add oil. Working in batches brown the cubed elk meat, remove and set aside when done. Add bacon to the pot and cook until semi-transparent and a little underdone.


3. Carefully add the hominy and sauté until lightly golden and bacon is fully cooked. Remove hominy and bacon leaving bacon grease. Add onions and garlic cooking until onions are soft and translucent, add additional oil if needed.

4. Combine the elk, hominy, chopped green chiles and beef broth back to the pot with the onions. Add the cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and a bay leaf. Cover with a lid and bake for 3-4 hours or until the meat is tender.

5. Serve with warm corn tortillas and garnish with sour cream, avocado, cilantro and sliced jalapeños. You can also cut thin strips from flour or corn tortillas and then fry them in a small amount of oil. The crispy chips really add a nice finishing touch to each bowl full of stew.
