Do you ever find yourself scrolling along on Instagram only to get mesmerized by the Tasty videos? Everything looks so tasty and easy to make. Over the weekend, my babe and I watched the Tacos Al Pastor video on Tasty and he decided to make it.
If you can’t find the guajillo chili powder, buy the guajillo chili pods, then cut them open to get rid of the seeds, and blend until it becomes a powder.
Pro tip: Have the butcher cut the pork into 1 cm thick slices before you leave the store.
We ran into a tiny problem after while the pork was cooking, the meat fell over because it was too heavy. We had to put extra skewers in the meat to support it. Next time, we are going to use the turkey fryer rack for the pineapple and meat so it doesn’t fall over.
Wrap your baking sheet in heavy duty foil before you put the al pastor on it to bake. This will save you tons of time in cleaning. We used parchment paper and it helped but since you will have drippings from the meat and the pineapple, you’re going to want to use heavy duty foil so you can pour the drippings over the meat after you’re done slicing it for the tacos.
Secret to Amazing Al Pastor Leave the pork marinating in the fridge for at least a day for the most flavor.
