Recipe Name: And More Homemade Tamales Submitted by: Administrator

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

10 Pound(s) Meat-venison roast/pork
Roast mix, any roasts
10 Pound(s) Massa
1/2 3/4 can
1 Jar
1 Reg jar
Lard, the big can
Chili powder
Garlic powder
Boil the meat with garlic powder until mushy. Drain broth and flake
mushy meat. Season with all the cumin and salt. Add 1/2 cup of the
broth back to make the consistancy more mushy. (you can do this step
the day before) Mix the lard, salt and chili powder to the Massa. Add
in enough of the broth to make the Massa spreadable. Take one package
of corn husks which have been soaked for 30 minutes in water and
separate. To make the tamales, spread some Massa mixture (about 1 or 2
tablespoons) over the corn husk, about 1/4 inch thick, starting about
2 inches from the bottom of the husk. This part will have no Massa and
will be folded over the tamale to seal it. Put about 1 tablespoon of
filling into the tamale, roll, fold over the empty corn husk to seal.
When you have made about 2 to 3 dozen, stand upright in a pan with
either a steamer or wadded aluminum foil to keep the tamales straight,
open end up. Put about 2 inches of water in the pan and pour more
broth INTO the open ends of the tamales to soak. Cover and steam for
45 minutes to an hour. (Increase or decrease steam time depending on
how many tamales are in the pan) The great part of this recipe is
tasting the batch you just made to see if it is tasty. Increase the
heat by adding a diced jalapeno or serano pepper. The chili powder
adds enough heat to spice them, but children can still eat them. The
peppers are for the die-hard dragons in the group. Also, if you don't
get the Massa salty enough you should adjust that. Vary each batch,
label, wrap 6 to a package with freezer paper and enjoy! Recipe By
