Tacos al pastor may be the most common type of taco in Mexico. Any night of the year one can walk or drive around just any downtown of any city or town that I’ve ever visited and find at least one place making tacos like you see in the picture below.
Recently, we discovered “Pastor Seasoning” at a supermarket. We had never seen that before, so we bought a box and Beth decided to try making it. We don’t have a “spit” like the normal way of making it, so she tried something different.
Since we really like the flavor of the pineapple (on top of the spit above), she decided to put the thinly-sliced marinated pork (that was slightly broiled first) into a hollowed out pineapple. She placed this into the oven for about an hour. After cooking, she chopped up the pork and we ate it in tacos. We had some leftover mango salsa to put with it. It turned out really well. It was less greasy and without the fat and gristle we often get with the normal pastor meat. We’ll probably do this one again!
