Catholic Recipe: Hopi Corn Stew
St. Katharine Drexel founded a religious order of women dedicated to mission work among the Native American and African-American poor. Her feast is a good time to experiment with a traditional native American recipe. Recipe is the property of Elaya K. Tsosie.
Heat shortening in a large heavy skillet. Brown meat and add salt and pepper to taste. Add squash, corn and 2 cups water. Simmer about 30 minutes, or until vegetables are almost tender. In a cup, stir together cornmeal and 2 tbs. water to make a paste. Stir thickener into stew. Stir about 5 minutes to prevent sticking.
