Tacos Al Pastor
Tacos Al Pastor is a traditional street food served up all over Mexico. This recipe is for pork tacos, but you can easily make them with chicken or beef, too. The pork is marinated in a flavorful sauce made with pineapple, chilies, and spices. Then it’s grilled to perfection and served up in warm tortillas with all your favorite toppings.
For the Pork: Season the pork cubes with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork to the skillet and cook until browned on all sides. For the Sauce: In a blender or food processor, combine the pineapple chunks, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, reserved pineapple juice, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth. Once the pork is cooked through, transfer it to a bowl and pour in the sauce. Toss to coat well. Grill or warm tortillas on the grill, then assemble tacos with pork, salsa, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, chopped onions, and cilantro. If you don’t have a grill or want to avoid heating your kitchen in the summer months, you can warm tortillas in a dry pan over medium heat. Just be sure not to overcrowd the pan or they will steam instead of browning.
