The family run Herradura Steel business was founded on 1960 by Don Gilberto Ponce, in the state of Mexico.
Herradura Steel’s history dates back to its creators childhood, when his older brother had the opportunity to go to the United States to work in arms production factory. Where he was able to learn the trade of metal casting.
Upon his return to Mexico, he taught his younger brother the trade and together they founded the first foundry company in the area.
Don Gilberto was a born industrial engineer, which allowed him, even without studies, to develop an immense amount of cast iron prototypes, from industrial machines to household utensils.
Over time, his ingenuity and passion made the business grow and expand beyond the national market, becoming a leading export company of cast iron products.

How do you make masa dough and tortillas from tortilla flour?
Gather the ingredients into a ball, and knead the dough until smooth and no longer sticky. Covering with a towel, allow to stand for 1 hour.
HOW TO MAKE TORTILLAS
Line the base of the tortilla press with a sheet of plastic wrap.
Pinch off balls of dough from the masa. Centre the masa on the lined tortilla-press base and cover the masa with a sheet of plastic wrap.
Lower the top of the press and push down the handle then open. The tortilla will have plastic wrap on the bottom.
Carefully peel away the plastic on top. Place your hand under the tortilla.
Flip the tortilla onto the other hand so the plastic is on top. Carefully peel away the plastic.
Flip tortilla onto a preheated, very hot griddle or comal.
When the tortilla begins to dry on the edges, flip it over. Cook until the top begins to puff.
Tap lightly with your fingertips to allow for even puffing and let it cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
Remove tortillas, wrap in a napkin or clean tea towel, and serve.
