DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, beat together margarine and masa with a hand mixer until well combined, adding water as needed.
  • Add salt and sugar and enough water to make a thick batter (the consistancy should be somewhere between cookie dough and cake batter).
  • Pour half of the batter into an ungreased 8"x8" square pan.
  • Spread the meat over the first layer, then spread the rest of the batter on top.
  • Cover pan with foil.
  • Place the pan into another, larger pan.
  • Pour hot water into the bottom pan so that the smaller pan is about 1/4"-1/2" submerged.
  • Place pans into a 350 degree oven.
  • Bake in water bath for 50 minutes, then allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • Slice and serve with beans and rice, and sauce, if desired.
