A tamale is a Mexican and Native American dish consisting of a soft cornmeal (masa) dough filled with meat, cheese or vegetables, then steamed. This recipe is for a flavourful pork filling. If you are making your own tamale dough, you may want to reserve 250ml of the stock before draining - it makes delicious tamales. You can always use this pork filling for tacos, burritos or enchiladas, as well.
What a great recipe! This is easy to make and good in corn or flour tortillas with a little hot sauce. My family loved it! - 15 Sep 2008
I cooked this for use with tamales, but my children were so enticed by the smell, they kept eating it and wouldn't leave it alone! They just LOVED it, plain. - 15 Sep 2008
This tastes really good. I preferred the pork to beef in tamales when I made both. - 15 Sep 2008
