Beef Tamales

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2004
The masa was too bland even after I added some extra spices to the mix and to the broth. That didn't stop them from being very good though. I just let my family add their own amount of salt for their own preference. Another thing that happened to me was that my masa would not get firm. It remained mushy even after steaming for two hours. It was probably my own mistake, I probably had too much water in the steamer. I solved the problem by placing the tamales in the oven on really high heat for a little while. Just until the husks turned a little brown on the edges. I tought they were perfect after that. Great recipe.
