Real Homemade Tamales

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
I like this recipe. I do change the preparation of the meat. I cook it in the oven. I prefer the roasted pork to the boiled. If there is still cooking liquid in the pan after the meat is done, I use it in the Mesa or I reduce it down and add it back to the meat. I also prop my tamales up so that they are standing when steaming. I simply lay my steam basket on it's side and stack the basket until it is full. If there isn't enough tamales to fill the basket (which I always make extra) you could fill the empty space with left over corn husks or something to keep your tamales from falling flat. If my tamales are not sitting up, the filling tends to flow out of the husk. I would not be afraid to season my pork with extra seasoning....I like my tamales with a lot of flavor. I also keep the pepper sauce on the side, not everyone likes it in the meat at my house.
