Ingredients:  
5 lb. piece of lean beef
5-6 bog onions
1 lg. can tomatoes
Cornmeal

Directions:
Directions:
Cook beef in water until done. Save the water to cook the corn meal in.

When meat is cool, put through a good grinder. Also grind onions. Add tomatoes. Soak all the tomato juice up with bread & run through the grinder. Run a couple extra slices through to soak up the juice in the grinder.

Mix all ingredients and season with salt & pepper.

It will take equal amounts of meat mixture and cornmeal to make tomales.

Take the meat water, add salt and put over heat. Add as much cornmeal as needed in the water before it starts to boil so it doesn't lump. Cornmeal should be pretty stiff, not quite as stiff for corn meal mush.

Place a portion of the meat on a portion of cornmeal and wrap in tamale papers.

Steam them until warm.
