Cooking time

20 minutes

The term "al pastor" refers to a Mexican cooking technique of cooking pork with a mixture of peppers, spices and pineapple before combining it with citrus fruit, onion and cilantro. In this superb Goodfood recipe, we opt for a crowd-pleasing chili-free version that combines pineapple in a salad bursting with red onions, grated cabbage, lime and fresh cilantro. It’s all piled into hot tortillas and garnished with Cotija cheese for a taco dish that everyone will love!

    Cook the pork
    In a large pan, heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the ground pork* and season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

    Warm the tortillas
    Heat the reserved pan on medium. Working one or two at a time (so that they do not overlap), toast the tortillas, 30 seconds to 1 minute per side, until lightly browned.
