Tacos Al pastor is a Mexican dish featuring a pork and pineapple mixutre. By marinating the pork with pineapple, the protein in the pork breaks down resulting in very tender meat. These tacos are genererally served on soft tortillas and include cilantro, onions, lime juice, pineapple, and salsa.

Tacos al Pastor literally means "shepherd's tacos". Commercially in Mexico, the meat is cooked on a rotating spit and carved into thin slices to fill tacos. This recipe gives you some of the same flavors and you can make it at home. I like to serve it with grilled pineapple slices from my grill pan or the backyard grill. Recipe from TACOS.
A popular taco filling in Mexico, pork al pastor is usually cooked in a huge slab on a vertical rotisserie (like Middle Eastern shawarma) and sliced off to order, so that the outside bits are crisp and golden and the inside is juicy and tender. Cooks often stick an onion or a pineapple on top of the rotisserie so that its juices drip down over the well-seasoned meat. Pineapple takes a more central role in this grilled version: The puréed fruit sweetens the basting sauce, while chunks of it join the pork and onion on the skewers. A homemade salsa and an array of accompaniments invite guests to get in on the action.
