This al pastor taco recipe is quick and easy to prepare, full of amazing flavor, and your slow cooker does all the work for you! Paleo-friendly, gluten- and grain-free.
For the pork:
2 cups fresh pineapple, diced
½ white onion, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves
½ cup orange juice
2 tbsp white vinegar
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 tbsp chipotle chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
juice of 1 lime
2 lb pork loin, cubed
For the tacos:
Paleo-friendly grain-free tortillas
¾ cup pineapple, diced
½ white onion, minced
handful of fresh cilantro, minced
Paleo ranch dressing (optional)
- Place all pork ingredients (except for the pork) in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Place cubed pork loin in a crockpot and cover pork with pureed mixture. Cover crockpot and cook on low for about 8 hours.
- Once pork has cooked through, use two forks to shred the meat and mix to coat with the cooked down sauce.
- To heat tortillas: place tortilla over a gas stovetop until slightly browned on both sides (about 10-15 seconds per side).
- To build tacos: use a slotted spoon to scoop out the meat and place in taco shell. Top with pineapple, onion, cilantro, a small amount of creamy ranch, and squeeze fresh lime juice on top!
