Al Pastor Recipe w/ Pork Sirloin Tip

Updated: Jun 21, 2019


I won't bore you with a long diatribe about my family history and life experiences involving Al Pastor before I get to the recipe: the purpose of why you're here. I will say that I love Al Pastor, but it has too much fat in it to be able to consume in the quantities I'd like to (every meal, preferably), so I changed the protein source from the fattier pork shoulder, to an almost fat-free pork sirloin tip, which is sold at Costco in 10lb increments. I used all 10lbs for this, so you may need to adjust the sauce, or make the quantity I've written out and reserve some for chicken breasts or thighs for later cooking. I bet it would be fantastic with chicken!
