Is the pork loin meat?  How did you make your Adobo sauce and how long did you let it soak?  Looks yummy for sure!!!

I'm telling you those tacos look awesome!


Last spring we made and sold some pork and chicken tacos very similiar to that except with a special avocado slaw my wife makes... had a line around the block!


That marinade looks fantastic though, i'll have to remember that one!


Thanks for sharing.

If the weather stays nice this weekend I am going to give this one a try, Al Pastor tacos are one of my favs.  There is a great taco truck down the street from my work that sells some of the best I have had.  Thanks for sharing the recipe!!!
