Categories     breakfast    dessert

Prep Time 60 minutes

Cook Time 90 minutes

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 7

2.2 lb corn kernels (about 5 or 6 cobs)
½ cup butter (softened)
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup masa harina (Maseca or any other brand)
½ cup cornmeal
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Steps:

  • Cut off the two ends of the corn cob.
  • With a sharp knife, remove the kernels. Cut from the base downward with a gentle sawing motion. If it is easier for you, do this operation into a large bowl so that the kernels won’t spill all over the counter.
  • Working in batches place the corn in a food processor or blender and grind them lightly. The tamales texture depends how finely you grind the corn.
  • Place the corn into a large bowl. If you notice that the mixture is too runny, place it in a colander and let it drain for a couple of minutes.
  • Beat the butter with the sugar until fluffy and almost white.
  • Add the butter to the bowl with corn, and mix in the flours until everything is combined.
  • Put about three tablespoons of the corn mixture in the middle of a husk. Fold in carefully so the dough won’t come out.
  • Arrange the tamales in a steaming pot. Steam from 80 to 90 minutes (read notes).

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.

  • When blending hot liquids, first let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open; this will prevent the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse until smooth.
