Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Al pastor is a dish developed in Central Mexico, likely as a result of the adoption of the shawarma spit-grilled meat brought by Lebanese immigrants to Mexico. Having derived from the shawarma, it is also similar to the Turkish doner kebab and the Greek gyros. Whereas d ner is usually lamb-based (thus the "shepherd style" name), gyros and tacos al pastor in Mexico are made from pork. Pork is marinated over one or two days in a combination of dried chiles and then slowly cooked with a gas flame on a vertical rotisserie called a trompo, very similar to how shawarma is cooked, with a piece of fresh onion and a pineapple on top.show more
