Tacos al pastor

Tacos Al Pastor

In Mexico, tacos al pastor are made with meat cooked on a vertical spit, like those used for shawarma or shish taouk. This cooking method was passed down by Lebanese immigrants who arrived in Mexico over a century ago. Of course, this recipe was adapted to local tastes with the addition of spices, chilies… and pineapple!
