Tacos Al Pastor (Developed by Chipotle restaurants)

1/4 cup minced garlic
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chile powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of ground cumin
Pinch kosher salt, to taste
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons achiote paste, optional
1 tablespoon honey
2 pounds boneless pork loin, thinly sliced
1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into long, thick strips
12 flour tortillas
Chopped onions to taste
Cilantro to taste
Hot sauce, optional, to taste

In a medium bowl, combine garlic, vinegar, oregano, chile
powder, black pepper, cumin, salt to taste, honey, orange juice,
and achiote paste (if using). Add pork slices and turn to coat both
sides. Marinate for at least 1 hour.

Heat a grill. Place meat over hot coals and cook, turning
once and basting with any leftover marinade during cooking, until
crisp. At the same time, grill pineapple strips, turning as
needed, until lightly browned. Remove to a plate and set aside.

To assemble, chop grilled pork into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut
pineapple into 1/2-inch pieces. Place pork on warmed
tortillas and top with onions, cilantro and pineapple pieces to taste. Serve with hot sauce on the side, if desired.
