Tacos al pastor – Mexican recipe video

Make authentic Mexican tacos in your own kitchen with this easy recipe:

Tacos are a perennial favourite and fun party food. Impress guests with an authentic and classic Mexican dish, tacos al pastor. ‘Al pastor’ means ‘in the style of the shepherd’, yet this recipe is always made of pork.

Pork is marinated in a flavourful puree of chillies, orange juice, pineapple, onion and spices. It’s cooked on a griddle pan before being served with griddled pineapple in soft corn tortillas.

If you can’t find the special chillies called for in this recipe, shop online at a site like, and you’ll be rewarded. In a pinch, use a mix of dried red chillies and mild dried red Spanish peppers.
