ISO Tacos del Pastor recipe

Does anyone have a recipe for this dish? It is very popular in Mexico but it seems the recipe for the marinade is closely guarded by chefs.

Sorry, I don't have one personally but I found several by doing a Google Search. I have never heard of it - it looks quite interesting and good!!!

That first one looks awsesome!

I hear guards in Mexico are easily bribed.

I did that, too, but they are all so different that I wanted to know if anyone had made them. Thanks.

I don't think so. They were probably bribed to leave.

Hi butzie - welcome to DC! I wish I had a recipe for you, but the tacos al pastor I've had here were all served at streetside taco stands and prepared on a special upright rotisserie, with the meat shaved off, like gyros. I don't think this is a recipe you can exactly duplicate at home. But I also did a little googling, and found this site, which gives (extensive) directions for duplicating the taste of this delicious pork, if not the process.
Tacos Al Pastor

Good luck - if this works for you, I might try it too - for a BIG taco party.
