How to fix my masa for tamales?

Rbit | May 3, 201211:17 AM

I spent all day yesterday preparing and steaming some of my beef tamales. The filling was great but the masa tasted wrong. I had bought premade masa dough and mixed it with some of the beef broth to get the right consistency and I thought that was it but the end result was almost bitter? It's my first time by the way and looking at the label it says masa fina- which I found is more for tortillas- so are there any tips on how to fix my masa? I have a 2nd package of dough and more meat filling but the dough is still masa fina and I'd like to try again today.
