But What is Al Pastor & Where Does it Come From?

Traditionally, al pastor is prepared by marinating pork and onion for a full day, layering the mixture and roasting it on a spit with pineapple. The fat continuously drips down the meat, keeping it moist while the outer bits get lovely and crispy. 

Al pastor has its roots in the 1930s migration of Lebanese immigrants to Mexico. It’s amazing and tastes similar to shawarma!

Eat al pastor as burrito bowls with coconut jicama rice but you could easily serve these as tacos topped with cilantro and onions. The only best constant is Teta Foods Al Pastor Simmer Sauce.
