Shredded pork gets cooked in a bright, aromatic chili powder sauce instead of the ancho and guajillo sauce typically used for pork tamales in Mexico. Stuff corn masa with the juicy pork filling, wrap in corn husks and steam to tender perfection.

Provided by Food Network Kitchen

Total Time 3 hours 55 minutes

Prep Time 2 hours 25 minutes

Cook Time 1 hours 30 minutes

Yield 24 tamales

Number Of Ingredients 16

2 1/2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 3-inch pieces
Kosher salt
1 onion, quartered
4 sprigs fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
2 bay leaves
12 black peppercorns
24 dried corn husks
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/3 cup plus 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cups masa harina (instant corn flour)
1 1/3 cups lard

Steps:

  • Make the filling: Put the pork in a deep saucepan and cover with cold water (about 6 cups). Add 2 teaspoons salt, the onion, thyme, oregano, bay leaves and peppercorns; cover and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the pork is tender, 1 hour, 30 minutes to 2 hours. Transfer the pork to a plate and shred. Strain and reserve the cooking liquid; keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, soak the corn husks in a bowl of hot water, using a plate to keep them submerged, until pliable, 1 hour.
  • Combine the pork, cumin, 1/3 cup chili powder, the garlic, flour, sugar, vegetable oil and 1 cup of the reserved cooking liquid in a large skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the dough: Mix the masa harina, lard, 2 teaspoons salt, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon chili powder and 2 2/3 cups of the reserved cooking liquid in a bowl until combined.
  • Drain the husks and pat dry. Starting 1/2 inch from the wide end, spread about 3 tablespoons of the dough down a husk, leaving a 1-inch border on the sides. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the pork filling down the center of the dough, then fold in the sides of the husk, wrapping the dough around the filling. Fold up the narrow end of the husk. Repeat with the remaining husks, dough and filling.
  • Set a steamer basket in a large pot filled with 1 to 2 inches of water. Arrange the tamales standing up in the steamer, folded-side down. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, cover and steam until the dough is firm, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from the steamer and let cool slightly before unwrapping.

PORK & GREEN CHILE TAMALES – INSTANT POT RECIPES



Pork & Green Chile Tamales – Instant Pot Recipes image

Making classic Mexican tamales can be an all-day project. The Instant Pot cuts the timing in half—streamlining the process by cooking the meat quickly and in the same pot that steams the finished tamales.

Provided by Williams Sonoma Test Kitchen

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 100 minutes

Yield 12-16 tamales

Number Of Ingredients 16

3/4 pound pork shoulder (boneless, cut into 4-inch cubes)
kosher salt
pepper (freshly ground)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 yellow onion (diced)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 ounces green chiles (diced)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves (finely chopped)
4 cups corn masa mix (masa harina for tamales)
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
4 cups Water
2/3 cup solid vegetable shortening (melted)
16 in large corn husks (soakedwater to cover for 1 hour)

Steps:

  • Season the pork generously with salt and pepper. Select Sauté on the Instant Pot and warm the oil. In batches, sear the pork until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes total. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the pork to a plate.
  • Add the onions to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the cumin and garlic powder, return the pork to the pot, add the broth and chiles, and give everything a good stir. 
  • Lock the lid in place and turn the valve to Sealing. Press the Keep Warm/Cancel button to reset the program, then press the Manual/Pressure Cook button and set the cook time for 1 hour at high pressure. 
  • Let the steam release naturally for about 10 minutes, then turn the valve to Venting to release any residual steam.
  • Carefully remove the lid and, using a slotted spoon, transfer the pork mixture to a bowl. Using 2 forks, shred the pork.
  • Add the cilantro, season with salt and pepper, stir well and let cool to room temperature. Using pot holders, lift out the inner pot, rinse well, and return the inner pot to the Instant Pot housing.
  • In a large bowl, mix the corn masa mix, salt, and baking powder, then stir in 3 cups of the water until blended.
  • Stir in the vegetable shortening, then knead the masa against the side of the bowl until incorporated. 
  • Remove the husks from the water and pat dry. Place the husks on a work surface with the narrow ends facing you.
  • One at a time, spread about 3 tablespoons of the masa mixture onto the widest part of a husk and top the masa with about 1 tablespoon of the pork mixture. Fold in the sides of the husk to enclose the filling, then fold up the bottom narrow flap of husk over the center and secure with a narrow strip of the husk. Repeat until all the filling is used.  
  • Pour the remaining 1 cup water into the Instant Pot and insert the steam rack. 
  • Arrange the tamales on the rack, standing them upright. Lock the lid in place and turn the valve to Sealing.
  • Press the Manual/Pressure Cook button and set the cook time for 40 minutes at high pressure.  Let the steam release naturally for about 10 minutes, then turn the valve to Venting to release any residual steam.
  • Carefully remove the lid and transfer the tamales to a plate. Let stand for 15–30 minutes to set up before serving.

  • Remove a tamale from pot; let cool 3 minutes. (If you don’t let it rest before checking, masa will stick to husk and appear gummy.) Remove husk; if masa sticks to husk, it’s not ready. Carefully refold and return to pot. Cook 5 minutes more; check again. If husk peels back easily, tamales are done. Remove from heat, uncover, and let sit 10 minutes before unwrapping. Serve with salsa and lime wedges for squeezing over.

HOW TO MAKE TAMALES LOUISIANA STYLE RECIPE - FOOD.COM
These take a bit of time to roll, but the end result is well worth the effort. My Maw maw-in-law taught me how to make hot tamales with this recipe (she learned how to make them from a friend in Texas.) You can adjust the spices to your tastes- my husband loves it when you use tablespoons instead of teaspoons, but I find it too hot. You can also use all beef instead of that 1 lb of pork, if you prefer. Tamale wrappers are available in specialty stores, or online, although some grocery stores carry them. You will need 80-100 6-inch paper tamale wrappers, which are not listed in the ingredients as they aren't food. This recipe makes a lot by design, and they freeze wonderfully. I took pictures of the steps involved in rolling the tamales and posted them on my blog in case my directions aren't clear: http://randomcreativity.wordpress.com/2012/06/08/tamales/

MUSTARD-GLAZED PORK TENDERLOIN RECIPE - NYT COOKING
This savory-sweet treatment for pork tenderloin was brought to The Times in 1989 by the inimitable Marian Burros.

Here's a surprising and flavorful way to prepare tenderloin, one of the leanest and most economical cuts of pork. Brown the whole tenderloin. Let it rest for a few minutes, so the meat firms up a bit. Then slice the tenderloin into medallions, about an inch thick. Brown the slices on both sides and top with a quick French-style sauce made of heavy cream and Dijon mustard, lemon juice or Calvados.
