Pork Tacos al Pastor?>4.3/5 (Based on ">18 reviews)
Tacos "al pastor" (or "shepherd style") is an example of fusion food between Lebanese shawarma and grilled pork sold by Mexican street vendors. Think rotisserie-grilled pork rubbed with spices of the Middle East, sliced and served in a taco with Mexican style pickled onions (escabeche), coriander and fresh pineapple. Here we pack the punch of these classic flavours without the need for a rotisserie spit in your home!

Your shopping list for 2 servings:
- 300g pork fillet cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 red onion, finely chopped
- 400g tin black beans (don't drain)
- 4 soft corn tortillas (check for GF if needed)
- 1 snack pack of pineapple (about 100g), cut into small cubes
- a handful of coriander (optional)
- 1 lime (optional)
- 1 small red onion finely sliced, (see tip) (optional)
Our 25 minute recipe
Marinate the pork in the AL PASTOR SPICE BLEND. Keep aside.
Mix the HABANERO HOT SAUCE with 1 tbsp water in a small bowl to loosen it. Keep aside.
If you're doing the extra optional pickled onions (see tip), prep this now.
Make the Frijoles (pronounced fri-HO-lez!)
Heat a little oil in a saucepan and fry the chopped onion for 2 mins to soften, then mix in the FRIJOLES PASTE.
Tip the black beans (including the liquid) into the pan and gently bring to a simmer for 2 mins.
Turn the heat down and mash the beans with a potato masher until around half are mashed, then mix well to create a thick, saucy bean mixture.
Fry the pork
Heat a little oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and then fry the pork quickly until golden brown on both sides (around 2-3 mins).
Turn down the heat to medium-low and cook for 2 more mins, or until the pork is cooked through.
To make your tacos, spread a spoonful of beans onto a tortilla, top with some pork and pineapple pieces and coriander and lime juice (if having). Lightly drizzle some hot sauce over your tacos
