"I had a moose roast sitting in my freezer for a couple of months, because I had no idea how to cook it, not being a wild game fan. A friend suggested this method of cooking it and it was delicious. I made it at Christmas along with the turkey, thinking my guests could have a taste and I wouldn't have to feel guilty about it being in my freezer anymore, but it was the hit of the dinner!" — by NUTRELLA

Beef Tamales

Beef Tamales

  • Rating
"These are just like the tamales my Abuelita used to make for special occasions. This recipe makes a lot, but if you're going to go to all the trouble of making tamales from scratch, you might as well have a party! You will need butchers' twine and a large pot with a steamer basket to make these. May be frozen up to 6 months in heavy-duty resealable plastic bags. To reheat, thaw in refrigerator and then steam or microwave until heated through." — by jenn
