Maybe the least authentic recipe I have seen online yet. From the meat to the actual wrapping. They are steamed however that part is right.

Massa is NOT corn meal. It is specially prepared corn flour. It comes in yellow or white, but is not the same as or interchangeable with cornmeal. Also, when spreading the dough in the husk, you want to end up with the meat completely surrounded by the dough. Like a filled dumpling. Traditionally, the husks wrap the filling & dough and are tied with a strand of corn husk.

Well folks, pork loin is never used to make tamales. pork sholder or a cut with some fat on it to add flavor. Also the masa should be spread thinner even if you have to use more husks. put all seasoning in tamale before cooking for maximum flavor. Chef Dean,Mission Texas
