Tacos al Pastor

In Spicy Main Dishes by Dave DeWittLeave a Comment

Tacos al Pastor are the best introduction to tacos to a rookie. They’re very popular on the street and easy to make at home. So far no one that I offered them to has disliked them. In the absence of a vertical grill, use a horizontal grill and cook in low heat.

Ingredients
For the adobo
Servings: tacos
Instructions
  1. Boil the chiles 3 to 5 minutes in two cups of water. Reserve. Once the chiles cooled off, mix all adobo ingredients in a blender into a uniform thick sauce. You may use the water where you boiled the chiles to help the blender. Marinate the meat with the adobo for at least a couple of hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Set up your wood or charcoal or gas grill to low heat and grill the marinated pork fillets and the whole pineapple slices. Heat the tortillas. Chop the cooked meat and pineapple and make yourself some tacos. Garnish with fresh onion and cilantro, and with your favorite salsa.
