Then that should work. Give it a try and let us know.

Props on how you steamed those Revvy... I'm the guy that rushes out to by a specialty item like a steamer basket for something like this, but that looks like it would work great.

The basket comes from my spaghetti pot, and I used a folding steamer to raise it up above water level.

This recipe is so much differant from what we do...i like the tamales from my moms side a little more than my dads but ours start the night before and its normally at least 10 pounds of meat and 15 pounds of masa to even mke it worth it. My 80 year old grandma still does about 30 lbs of meat and 45 of masa for christmas. We have been doin em for the last 2 years at my house and i have yet to master these lil treasures.
To steam them we use a pie tin with holes poked in with a knife and they are stacked like a teepee and cover with hand towels to hold the steam in

we do the christmas tamales too- actually christmas eve (my vowel ridden family)- they use my brew pot and load with a layer of banana leaves, tamales, leaves, et al per infinium... i don't what they put in the pot bottom - but i clean extra special... oh and they have at least two stirrers going on chicken and pork masa on the stove for at least 16 hours

claphamsa - you might try to buy a veggie green chili from the store in place of the tomato sauce, check the label though, some will have tomatillo in them (don't know if you would enjoy them, not tomatoes but similar) or maybe look online for a recipe without tomatillo if that's an issue. the tomato sauce is really in the braising liquid just to add some flavor (if the green chili is chunky, just puree it if you like). make sure it is a chili (no beans) and not just plain chiles. or now that i think of it, you could probably just get a can of fire roasted green chiles and throw it in with everything, should be fine. serve it with a green chili con carne.

could just as easily make green pork tamales as red pork tamales. i work with a lady that does both and as much as i enjoy the red, there is not much better than the green, especially when the hatch green chiles are in season.

b

edit: if you go with the straight chiles, i would maybe use some chili spice in the braising liquid too. don't be afraid to stick your finger in the liquid and taste it (or spoon). what ever that liquid taste like is going into your pork. recipes are all about doctoring them up to suit your taste. things can be added, changed or omitted (most cases).

THIS is one thing I love about living in El Paso, TX! This post has inspired me to make a batch of my homemade red sauce!
