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

    Now I could eat maybe a dozen of those little beauties for sure. I really like the home made adobo sauce. Thats a keeper 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!!!
