Cool Chile Co Al Pastor Kit 56g


Use this Al Pastor Marinade Kit by The Cool Chile Co to get the flavours of real Mexican street food.

The al pastor seasoning blend is the secret to the famous tacos al pastor – soft tortillas filled with grilled marinated meat, pineapple, salsa verde and lime juice. Traditionally, the meat is grilled on a vertical spit, similar to a shawarma, with a whole pineapple on top! In fact it is thought that tacos al pastor originated from Lebanese migrants to Mexico in the 19th and 20th centuries.

To get started you need one small ripe pineapple, 1kg of meat (pork shoulder or chicken thighs), 160ml pineapple juice, 50ml cider vinegar, two teaspoons of salt, two garlic cloves, three tablespoons of oil and your choice of serving accompaniments.

Makes 700g cooked al pastor meat. You’ll use approximately 35g per 10cm tortilla – so it should be enough for 20 tortillas!

Set Includes: 30g achiote paste (annatto powder, cider vinegar, water, garlic powder, sea salt, masa harina, cumin, all spice), 2 chiles guajillo, 1 chile ancho and a recipe sheet.
