  • Summary

    Thin slices of pork shoulder are marinated in a blend of dried chilies, spices, achiote, and pineapple. If you enjoy your tacos sweet, spicy, and smoky, you will love tacos al pastor. Al pastor is traditionally prepared on a vertical spit but with a hot heavy skillet, you can still enjoy al pastor.
