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!

Our 25 minute recipe

  1. Get prepped

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Serve!

    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

Not a great lover of ham and pineapple but this worked really well and will use the ‘pickled’ onion recipe on other dishes.

More spicey than I would normally eat

Alice - 28th July 2020

So tasty! And easy too. I marinated the pork in the spices for a couple of hours beforehand, added avocado, and mixed some yogurt with lime juice as an extra topping to cool the heat from the sauce. The pink pickled onions were a very tasty addition!

Barrie - 28th July 2020

Was unsure about this dish when trying it for the first time due to the ingredients. Very pleasantly surprised. Flavourful dish which was easy to cook. Would order again

A fantastic meal. It was nice to learn how to make my own refried beans, and habanero sauce is to die for. I will cook it again. The pickled red onions are a must! Great tip!

First time I cooked this I couldn't get black beans so went without. Used them this time and made a big difference, the pickled onions and pineapple work really well. Really enjoyed it
