Tacos al Pastor

These tacos are made with well-marbled pork collar, tenderized by the pineapple in the recipe for a taste that can’t be beaten. Don’t forget the margaritas!

1.2 kg – Sunterra Farms pork collar
1 – yellow onion, sliced
1 cup – pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced into rings

3 tbsp – chili powder
3 tsp – paprika
2 tsp – garlic powder
2 tsp – cumin powder
2 tsp – white wine vinegar
2 tsp – olive oil
2 tsp – fresh lemon juice
½ tsp – black pepper, freshly cracked
Salt to taste

24 – fresh tortillas, 4 to 6 inch diameter
1 cup – yellow onions, fine diced
2 cups – pineapple and mango salsa or pico de gallo
½ cup – jalapenos, chopped
1 cup – cilantro, chopped
1 cup – lime wedges

Thinly slice the pork collar across the grain. Combine the onion, pineapple and seasoning spices and toss with the sliced pork. Once all the slices are evenly seasoned, marinate for three to four hours or overnight.

If using a vertical spit, skewer the pork and cook as you would on a shawarma; otherwise, heat oil in a large cast iron skillet and fry the pork in small batches until charred and cooked through. Once cooked, slice into bite sized pieces.

To serve, lightly toast the tortillas, a few seconds each side. Top each tortilla with two ounces of pork and a half spoonful each of chopped onions, salsa, jalapenos and cilantro. Serve one to three tortillas per person with a lime wedge on the side.
