To make it even better I'm gonna show you two amazing sauces to go along with it. And let's not forget homemade tortilla. So let's do it! We started off with a pork shoulder butt. It's thirteen and a half pounds, it is an affordable piece of meat and it works great for this dish. The first thing I like to do is to remove the bone. Use the bone as a guide and work nice and slow. The only goal you have is to keep as much meat as possible, so be sure to stay as close as possible to the bone. As you can see it easily comes out. Since we're making taco al pastor the next thing to do is to slice them thin. When I say thin I mean half an inch thick you don't want paper-thin. And it's all to make sure our marinade will penetrate deeply into that meat. They don't need to be perfect slices, they just need to be thin. Your end goal is to end up with nice large pieces. The next thing to do is our marinade and it is delicious. And here's how to make it. this is guajillo chili it is not spicy but it has a wonderful flavor, and as you can see it comes completely dehydrated. Remember exact amount and ingredients always in the description down below for you. Since it's completely dry the first thing I like to do is to put it in some boiling water; that brings the chili back to life. You don't want to cook them for too long, anywhere between 30 seconds to a minutes does the job. Once the time is up just remove them and let them cool down. These are sour oranges, unlike regular oranges they're not sweet just like their name they're kind of sour and eating them by themselves it's not good, however they are perfect for a marinade. If you can't find sour oranges you will also be able to substitute with something else. Remember it's always in the description down below for you. To make this marinade all we have to do is throw everything into the food processor. We first started with the sour oranges, white vinegar, pineapple juice went in followed by the guajillo Chili's, garlic, white onions, cinnamon powder, white pepper, freshly ground black pepper, dry oregano, cumin and to finish it off a good amount of achiote powder. Now all there's left to do is mix it well in your food processor until all the ingredients have combined together and your marinade is done. It smells so good that you're gonna want to eat it just like this, but don't. Now all there's left to do is put it in the meat and mix it well. It's important to make sure every single piece is heavily coated. Now the only thing left to do is to cover it up and let it marinate in your refrigerator for 24 hours. As the meat is marinating I'm gonna show you an easy and simple but refreshing and tasty avocado sauce, here's how to do it. Using a hand processor throw in some avocado, lime juice, cilantro, freshly ground black pepper a good amount of mayonnaise and mexican queso crema. Now all there's left to do is mix it well and your avocado sauce is done. I'm telling you right now this sauce goes well with any taco or any sandwich. Since that was a refreshing sauce, I'm also gonna make a spicy sauce, come on this is Mexican food. And here's how to make it. I first started by rehydrating my chilis, we don't want to cook them we just want to rehydrate them. If you like it really spicy you can leave the seeds in but if you know me I don't like it too spicy. Then I took some tomatillos to the fire. I just want to put a nice char on them to give a nice flavor. Into the hand processor they went together with my chiles, mayo, freshly ground black pepper and finish it off with salt. Now all there's left to do is to blend it well and your hot chili sauce is done. Here's a quick tip if you want to save sauces just vacuum pack them they will last five times longer than if you leave it in jars. Now let's talk about tortilla. There's a lot of options out there. We got flour tortilla, obviously corn tortilla, tacos made out of white corn, street tacos made out of flour, the possibilities with tortillas are endless whenever you buying them pre-made. But I will tell you one thing there's nothing like making them at home. the fact that you control every aspect of the flavor is the perfect way to go. Homemade is always better. And today I'm going to show you how easy it is to make my version. And here's how to do it. A lot of people like to use lard, this is basically pork fat and it tastes good however I found out that butter tastes way better and ever since they tasted with butter I changed. And I know it's not traditional but just give it a try. I'm pretty sure you change as well. And this is masa de maiz it's the perfect flour to make tacos. I started off with my corn flour, threw in my melted butter and finished it off with water. You want to mix it well until everything is pliable you're looking for a consistency of play-doh if it's too dry you can always add more water. In the end you're basically looking for a nice pliable dough. If I pat it down and I press it lightly crumbles in the edges and this is the consistency you're looking for. Whenever I'm making tortillas I never use a measurement I always go by the feel. Once the mixing is done make sure to let your dough rest for at least 30 minutes. To make it easy for you to press your tortillas here's a quick tip using a ziplock bag cut out the sides this will stop the dough from sticking to the press. To make the tortilla is pretty simple. Just make a ball but right in the middle of the press push it down and that's it. Now all there's left to do is to cook it up. Talking about that, you want to use a cast iron this makes the job perfect every time because he retains the heat and you don't want to overcook your tortilla. Just make sure that they're lightly golden brown on the top and your tortillas are done. To help them finish cook and keep them moist I definitely recommend a tortilla warmer. If you don't have one you should it makes a world of a difference. The very next day my meat was done marinating so I quickly opened it up and give it a nice mix. I'm gonna be cooking mine on the grill but you can do just as good in the oven if you don't have a grill. And to make an authentic as possible I'm gonna use the pineapple trick. Place the pineapple right in the middle of a pan and using a chopstick put it right in the middle, this will allow you to stack up the meat just like they do in Mexico. The only thing to keep in mind is try to keep a round shape throughout the whole process. If any of the pieces are too large just make sure you cut them and put them on top. Try to keep them evenly so that your tower will not fall in the end, every small piece that comes out goes right in the middle. To finish it off just crown it with a pineapple and your taco al pastor tower is ready for the grill. Talking about that I'm gonna be cooking it in indirect heat at 500 degrees Fahrenheit. As the juices starts falling off I'll be collecting that and basting it in itself. As the edge starts being cooked I'll be shaving it off so we can make some amazing tacos with it. But now I say it is enough talking and it is time to make some amazing tacos al pastor so let's do it! We have our beautiful tacos over here. What do you think Angel? Mine looks appealing yours huh.
