Tacos are a major contribution to global cuisine, and those featuring al pastor pork are exquisite. Usually recognized by its offerings of tacos, burritos, and enchiladas, Mexican cuisine is a cuisine that is simple in its use of fresh ingredients but complex in its flavor development. With a Mexican dish, you will get sweet and spicy elements, rich and refreshing flavors, and crunchy and smooth profiles. Al pastor is a preparation of cooking meat similar to shwarma; basically, the meat is placed on a spit and slow cooked through rotation, allowing for an even and tender product. The meat is seasoned with dried chilis, spices and pineapple to create the melding of flavors described above.
