Traditional Tamales (Pork) image

This tamale recipe is about as traditional as you can get, although I use a roast instead of the whole pig head that many Mexican women use. I have also used beef, but they just do not taste quite the same. These take about all day to make and are a lot of work, but they are so worth the time and the effort. Not for the faint-hearted cook for sure. They are a huge hit here in the West. For added flavor, top with either some of the red sauce used to prepare this recipe, or with my favorite, green chili sauce with pork, recipe #20574. Serve with sides of Spanish rice, refried beans topped with cheese and frosty margaritas for a delicious authentic Mexican meal. For an online tamale-making tutorial, including pictures, please see posted in the Mexican cooking forum.

Time 6h

Yield 50 Tamales

Number Of Ingredients 10

3 1/2 lbs pork shoulder or 3 1/2 lbs pork butt, trimmed of fat and cut up
10 cups water
1 medium onion, quartered
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups red chili sauce (see Red Chili Sauce (To Be Used With Traditional Tamales) for red chili sauce)
3/4 cup shortening
6 cups masa harina
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
50 dried corn husks (about 8 inches long)


  • In a 5 qt Dutch oven, bring pork, water, onion, garlic and 1 1/2 salt to boil.
  • Simmer covered, about 2 1/2 hours or until meat is very tender.
  • Remove meat from broth and allow both meat and broth to cool. (Chilling the broth will allow you to easily remove the fat if you desire to do so).
  • Shred the meat using 2 forks, discarding fat.
  • Strain the broth and reserve 6 cups.
  • In a large sauce pan, heat the red chili sauce and add meat; simmer, covered for 10 minutes.
  • To make masa beat shortening on medium speed in a large bowl for 1 minute.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together masa harina, baking powder and 2 teaspoons salt.
  • Alternately add masa harina mixture and broth to shortening, beating well after each addition. (Add just enough broth to make a thick, creamy paste).
  • In the mean time, soak corn husks in warm water for at least 20 minutes; rinse to remove any corn silk and drain well.
  • To assemble each tamale, spread 2 tablespoons of the masa mixture on the center of the corn husk (each husk should be 8 inches long and 6 inches wide at the top. If husks are small, overlap 2 small ones to form one. If it is large, tear a strip from the side).
  • Place about 1 tablespoon meat and sauce mixture in the middle of the masa.
  • Fold in sides of husk and fold up the bottom.
  • Place a mound of extra husks or a foil ball in the center of a steamer basket placed in a Dutch oven.
  • Lean the tamales in the basket, open side up.
  • Add water to Dutch oven just below the basket.
  • Bring water to boil and reduce heat.
  • Cover and steam 40 minutes, adding water when necessary.
  • To freeze these for future meals, leave them in the husks and place them in freezer bags. To reheat, thaw and wrap in a wet paper towel and reheat in the microwave for 2 minutes for one or two or re-steam them just until hot.


Pork Tamales image

A little variation here from the traditional, in that this is 100% my own personal recipe for the pork mixture. I also prefer beef broth in the masa as compared to chicken broth. But I think you'll agree these are some darn good tamales.

Time P1DT5h55m

Yield 15

Number Of Ingredients 20

15 corn husks, or as needed
2 peppers dried guajillo chile peppers, seeded
1 cup beef broth
1 cup tomato sauce
¼ medium onion, minced
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 peppers chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (4 pound) boneless pork butt (shoulder)
2 cups masa harina
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups beef broth
⅔ cup lard, at room temperature


  • Soak corn husks in water for 24 hours prior to cooking, using something heavy to keep them submerged.
  • Prepare pork filling: Place guajillo chile peppers in a dry skillet over medium heat; dry roast until fragrant, 20 to 30 seconds per side. Pour some water over top and simmer until tender, about 2 minutes. Remove chiles from the skillet and transfer to a blender.
  • Add beef broth, tomato sauce, onion, garlic, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, vinegar, cloves, salt, cumin, allspice, and pepper to the blender and process until smooth.
  • Place pork butt in a slow cooker and pour marinade over top. Cook on Low until pork is tender and can be easily pulled apart with a fork, 4 to 5 hours. Shred pork and return to the slow cooker. Mix with the sauce until combined.
  • Combine masa, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt for dough in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; whisk to combine. Add beef broth and lard and whisk well; the resulting mixture should have an almost fluffy consistency and be relatively tacky.
  • Roll out a corn husk and pat it dry. Spread the dough evenly in the center of the corn husk, leaving room around the edges. Dollop a line of pork filling down the center. Fold the bottom of the husk up, then fold one edge over the filling. Tuck that edge under the filling and dough, and roll toward the other edge to seal around the filling. Fold the top down and tie with kitchen string, wrapping twice to secure. Repeat to make remaining tamales.
  • Place a steamer insert into a large saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil.
  • Place tamales vertically into the steamer basket, with the sealed edges down. Cover the pan and steam for 1 hour. Serve hot.

Traditional Pork Tamales image

Categories     main-dish

Time 16h

Yield 4 to 6 dozen tamales

Number Of Ingredients 25

2 1/2 pounds boneless pork butt in 1 piece, trimmed of all but a thin layer of fat
1 whole head garlic, un-peeled, cut crosswise in 1/2
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
4 large bay leaves
1 teaspoon salt
10 pounds masa (cornmeal flour)
1/4 cup water
3 heaping tablespoons baking powder
1/4 cup salt
4 cups vegetable shortening, boiled and cooled
5 whole dried California chiles
2 whole dried New Mexico chiles
2 whole dried pasilla chiles
2 pounds tomatoes
4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
3 tablespoons salt
2 cups water (stock saved from boiling chiles and tomatoes)
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 to 6 dozen dried corn husks
Green olives
Potatoes, peeled and cut into small pieces
Carrot sticks, peeled and cut into small pieces


  • Pork Butt:
  • Place pork butt in large Dutch oven or medium-size stock pot. Add garlic, peppercorns, bay leaves and salt. Add enough cold water to cover by at least 3 inches. Bring just to a boil on high heat, quickly reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer, partly covered, skimming any froth from the top during the first 15 to 20 minutes of cooking. A piece this size should be well-cooked but not dried out in 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Remove from stock and let cool to room temperature. When cool, pull meat into fine shreds.
  • Strain and degrease the stock. It will be easier to remove fat when thoroughly chilled.
  • Can be kept, tightly covered, 2 days in the refrigerator, if de-greased at once, up to 1 week if you leave the top layer of fat on it until ready to use. The stock also freezes well.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded pork with the red chile sauce.
  • Masa:
  • Place 10 pounds of masa in a large plastic mixing bowl. Mix 1/4 cup water with baking powder in a cup held over the bowl with the dry masa until it fizzes, then pour mixture evenly over masa. Add 1/4 cup salt and work masa with hands to mix evenly. Melt 4 cups vegetable shortening in a large saucepan and allow to cool. Pour evenly over masa and knead masa with hands again. When it starts to feel thick and compact (like fudge) it¿s ready. Pat down in bowl and set aside.
  • Chile Sauce:
  • In a large saucepan, boil chiles and tomatoes together for about 10 minutes or until softened. Drain the chiles and tomatoes and reserve the water (stock.) Set stock aside. Rinse seeds out of boiled chiles at sink. Grind garlic, 2 teaspoons salt and whole cumin with mortar and pestle. Put chiles, tomatoes, 3 additional tablespoons salt and ground ingredients together in blender and blend well. Add 2 cups of the reserved water (stock.)
  • In a heavy, medium-size saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium-high heat until rippling. Add flour, stirring constantly until golden. Add strained chile puree to the pan and reduce the heat to low. It will splatter, so be careful. Cook over low heat, stirring often, until the raw taste is gone and the flavor of the chiles has mellowed, about 10 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded pork with the chile sauce.
  • To assemble the tamales, soak dried corn husks in warm water for about 1 hour until soft. Spread masa mixture evenly onto husk using a wooden spoon. Fill with about 2 tablespoons pork mixture and top with 1 green olive, 1 slice of potato and 1 carrot stick. Fold and tie ends with pieces of corn husk. Steam for 1 and 1/2 hours.
  • To steam: To make a steamer, place a metal rack (such as a cooling rack) in the bottom of a large stock pot or canner. Water level should be below the rack. Lay extra corn husks over rack. Stand the tamales on the folded edge in the steamer (the open edge with be facing upward). First fill the bottom of the steamer, then start stacking tamales on top of one another. Place any extra husks on top of tamales, cover with pot lid and steam for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Replenish boiling water if necessary during steaming, time. The tamales are done when the husk peels away easily from the filling.


Tía Chita's Traditional Mexican Pork Tamales image

We felt tamales were appropriate for Día de los Muertos because of how labor intensive they are. The "tamalada," a family gathering to make tamales, allows us an opportunity to gather as a family to celebrate and honor our ancestors' memory, and at the end of the day, everyone takes home at least a dozen. What makes Tía Chita's recipe different is the amount of manteca (lard) we use to make it easier for the tamales to slide off the leaf.

Time 5h

Yield 30 to 32 tamales

Number Of Ingredients 13

2 1/2 pounds bone-in pork butt roast
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
3 dried bay leaves
1/2 medium onion
4 large cloves garlic
Kosher salt
30 to 32 corn husks (from one 8-ounce package)
2 ancho chiles
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
12 ounces lard
4 cups masa harina preparada (instant corn flour) for tamales, such as Maseca Tamal
3/4 teaspoon baking powder


  • There are a few steps to making tamales and it is usually an all-day affair.
  • Cooking the meat: Chop the pork butt into 3-inch cubes; reserve the bone.
  • Add the oil to a large pot or Dutch oven and place over medium-high heat (we use a Dutch oven because it seems to cook faster). Add the pork butt to the pot. Sear the sides slightly until just golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add the peppercorns, bay leaves, onion, 3 cloves of the garlic and 1 tablespoon salt. Add 2 to 4 cups of water, or enough to cover the pork butt, then add the reserved bone. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and bring it to a boil. Cook on medium heat until very tender, about 2 hours.
  • Preparing the corn husks: Separate the corn husks and take off all the little hairs and dust from them. Allow them to soak in hot water while the pork is cooking (or soak overnight).
  • Carefully remove the pork from the broth with tongs to a plate or cutting board. Pour the leftover broth through a colander into a large bowl so that all the onion and other ingredients stay behind. Set the strained broth aside for later (about 4 cups).
  • Shred the meat with 2 forks into small bite-size pieces. (You want it small enough that you aren't getting large pieces or chunks into the tamal.) Transfer to a medium saucepan.
  • Preparing the chile: Cut the stems from the ancho chiles, open them and remove all the seeds and veins. Put them in a 3-quart saucepan, cover with water and add 1 teaspoon salt. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat, set aside, cover and let steam for 5 minutes.
  • To a blender, add the softened chiles, ground cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt and blend. Press in the remaining clove of garlic and slowly add 2/3 cup of the reserved pork broth. Continue to blend until smooth. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a medium bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup of the chile mixture for the masa, then pour the remaining red chile sauce over the shredded pork and mix together to combine. Keep warm over low heat.
  • Preparing the masa: Melt the lard in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Pour the melted lard into a large bowl. Add the masa harina to the bowl of lard, then add the baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt, reserved 1/4 cup of the red chile sauce and 1/2 cup of the reserved pork broth. Knead well. Add more pork broth as needed until the dough is moistened and fluffy.
  • Assembling the tamales: Drain the husks and pat them dry with a clean towel. Spread the kneaded masa onto the smooth side of the corn husks with a spoon in the center of the husks (2 to 3 tablespoons of masa per husk). Add the meat to the center of the masa, 1 to 2 tablespoons per husk. Fold over the husks in half vertically so that the masa wraps around the filling completely. Fold the pointy side up at the end to hold the tamale in place.
  • Cooking the tamales: Arrange the tamales open-side up around the inside of a steamer basket that fits into a large (10-quart) pot, packing the tamales together. If there's extra space in the steamer basket, place a mason jar or small heatproof ceramic bowl upside down in the center, arranging the tamales around it. Arrange a layer of husks around the sides of the steamer basket and up over the top of the tamales and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Fill the large pot with 1 to 2 inches of water. (Note: You can put a penny at the bottom of the pot so you can hear it rolling when you need more water.) Bring the water to a rolling simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce to medium low, set the steamer basket inside of the pot and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Allow the tamales to steam for 1 to 2 hours or until the masa pulls away from the husks. Let sit to cool down for 5 to 10 minutes. Use tongs to remove the tamales afterwards and set on a jelly roll pan to cool down.

I had been looking for a Tamale recipe for years. One day I went to the international market and stood in the Mexican aisle till a woman with a full cart came by. I just asked her if she knew how to make Tamales. This is her recipe with a few additions from me. The pork can be substituted with either chicken or beef. This is great served with refried beans and a salad.
