Type: Tamales Free Cooking Recipe – Mexican


Ingredients / Directions
1 package dried corn husks

4 cup(s)s masa harina
4 cup(s)s lukewarm water
4 teaspoons Wyler”s granulated chicken boullion
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cup(s)s lard or vegetable shortening

2 ounces ancho chile
2 ounces pasilla chile
2 ounces guajilla chile
2 ounces New Mexican red chile

1 1/2 pounds pork shoulder or beef shoulder roast
1/2 large onion
5 cloves garlic
peeled & smashed
2 teaspoons salt
10 peppercorns
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
4 tablespoons ground chile seasoning
4 tablespoons lard or vegetable shortening the dried husks are brittle and must be soaked in water to soften
them before they can be rolled into tamales. In the package
husks for a whole ear of corn are usually pressed together. Separate the individual husks being careful not to break them
since they are fragile when dry.

Place the separated husks in a large pot and cover with hot water.
Leave them to soak for about one hour(s). You can put a plate with a
heavy object on it on top of the tamales to keep them submerged.
When soft
rinse the husks well and put back into a pot of clean

Toast the dried chiles on a hot cast-iron griddle for a few minutes
on each side. Be careful not to burn the chiles or they will have
a bitter taste. As the chiles toast
they will become soft and
pliable and may puff up. Put aside to cool. the chiles will become
very crisp and brittle when cooled.

When cool
remove the seeds and stems and crumble into small pieces. Put the pieces into a coffee mill or spice grinder and grind into a fine powder. Store the ground chile mix in a jar to use for
seasoning other Mexican dishes.

You can use a variety of meats for making tamales. I use either
beef or chicken
but pork is traditional. I also use vegetable
although again
lard is traditionally used in Mexico.
Cut the meat into 1″ to 2″ chunks. Heat the lard or shortening in
a heavy bottomed pot and brown the meat. When brown
add enough
water to cover the meat and add the onions and garlic. Simmer until
the meat is fork tender and flakes apart. For beef shoulder roast
this will take about 2 – 3 hour(s).

While the meat is cooking
toast the cumin seeds on a cast iron
griddle and then grind into a fine powder using a coffee mill or
spice grinder and set aside.

When the meat is cooked tender
set aside to cool. Separate the
meat chunks from the broth
reserving the broth. Shred the meat
into small strands.

Heat 2 tablespoons of lard or shortening in a heavy pan
cast iron. Add the chile seasoning and cumin and stir for a few
seconds. Add the meat and fry for two or three minutes. Add the
reserved broth and simmer until the liquid level is reduced. the
mixture should be soupy. Set aside to cool while you make the masa.

Combine masa
baking powder and salt in a bowl. Dissolve the boullion in the lukewarm water to make a broth. Mix the broth into the masa a little at a time
working with your fingers to make a moist dough.

In a small bowl
beat lard or shortening until fluffy
add to masa
and beat until masa has a spongy texture.

Remove a soaked corn husk from the water and shake to remove excess water. Start with the largest husks because they will be easier to roll. If you end up with a lot of small husks
you can lay two together
overlapping about 1/2″ but this is a little trickier and
may take some practice. Lay the husk flat on a plate and spread
about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons (depending on the size of the husk)
of masa in the center. Don”t use too much! the easiest way to spread the masa is to spoon it onto the husk and spread it with your fingers. If the masa is sticky
wet your hands.

Add about 1 tablespoon of meat filling on top of the masa. Again,
don”t use too much.
