Product Recipe


    For the marinade:
    1 dried arbol chile, de-seeded and stems removed
    1 medium white onion, quartered
    1 pineapple, cored and sliced into bite-sized pieces (1 cup reserved for marinade, the remaining for topping)
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    2 tbsp coarse sea salt
    2 tbsp dried oregano
    2 tbsp minced garlic (4 cloves)
    1 tsp cumin

    For the tacos:
    1kg boneless pork loin, cut into long thin slices
    cooking spray or cooking oil, for greasing grill
    serve with: tortillas, diced pineapple, minced onion, minced cilantro, lime wedges


For the marinade:

  1. Fill a medium bowl with hot water. Add the dried chiles, cover with plastic wrap and let soak for 15 minutes. 
  2. While the chiles are soaking, add the remaining marinade ingredients to a large blender. Remove the chiles from the water, shake off any excess liquid and add to the blender. Blend ingredients until completely combined.

For the tacos:

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag (or a large mixing bowl) add the marinade and sliced pork loin. Toss together to coat and marinate for 4-12 hours in the fridge.
  2. Remove from the fridge and grease grill with high-heat cooking spray or cooking oil. Grill the meat over medium-high heat until fully cooked through.
  3. Once all the meat is cooked, slice into thin strips and serve in warm corn tortillas with remaining fresh pineapple, onion, cilantro and lime wedges.
