    Ingredients

    • 1 (5 pound) pork shoulder
    • 1 pound dried corn husks
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 1/4 to 1/2 cup ground red chile
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground Mexican oregano
    • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    • 6 cups Masa Harina
    • 1/2 cup lard
    • 2 teaspoons salt

    Directions

    Cover the pork with water in a large pot. Add garlic, and bring to a boil. Simmer gently, covered, until meat is tender. Cool slightly. Discard the garlic. Chop the meat and set aside.

    Mix chile powder, Mexican oregano, and flour with 2 cups of the meat stock and add to the chopped meat. Bring to a boil and simmer gently until mixture is thick. Cool.

    Beat lard until light and fluffy. Blend in Masa Harina. Add enough meat stock or water to make the mixture soft and pliable. The dough is ready when a small lump floats slowly to the bottom of a glass of water, so test it several times to ensure that it is at the exact point.

    Soak the husks in hot water until they are soft. Drain. Spread a thin layer of masa on a husk. Put a heaping tablespoon of meat mixture down the center of the masa. Roll the husk carefully around the meat filling. Wrap another husk from the opposite side. Tie ends with string. Stand the tamales on end on a layer of corn husks in a steamer. Steam for about 1 hour. Drain and serve with more red chile sauce and beans.

    2. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the brown sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Gradually whisk in the evaporated and whole milk. Strain the mixture through a sieve and then pour it into the custard cups. Place the cups in a baking pan and add enough hot water to reach halfway up the sides. Bake for about 1 hour or until set. Let the flans cool to room temperature in the water bath. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    3. Run a knife tip around the edge of each flan and invert onto dessert plates. Serve cold.
