Perfect Tacos al Pastor

1 kg pork tenderloin or shoulder roast (cut into 1 cm thick slices)
1 can pineapple slices (or 1 whole pineapple, cored and cut into 1 cm thick slices) 
1 bottle Al Pastor Grilling Sauce

Marinate pork in ½ bottle of sauce for at least 1 hour.

Line the bottom and sides of a greased loaf pan with pineapple rings. Layer in pork slices and any remaining pineapple slices to form a tightly packed block.

OR grease stainless steel al pastor skewer skillet and alternate pork and pineapple rings to create a tightly packed vertical skewer.

Barbeque or roast at 375℉ until internal temperature reads 160℉. Once cooked, let cool to room temperature, remove from pan, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight - this ensures meat retains moisture, has better texture and fully incorporates all flavours.

To serve, slice loaf thinly and reheat in a frying pan with more sauce. Serve hot with warmed tortillas and top with any toppings you desire, such as lettuce, onions, cheese, fresh cilantro, and more.
