Pork “Al Pastor” Burrito Bowls

Today’s recipe post is a bit longer than the traditional weekday recipe.  I would recommend that you start this on a weekend as part of your meal prep, but honestly, you could easily throw it into your crockpot in the morning and have dinner on the table within 30 minutes of arriving home after work.

I cooked the pork using a marinade that utilized a local dry cider.  I used the Paul cider from Platform Brewery (local CLE brewery!), but you can use any dry cider.  I’d just suggest that you check the sugar content before utilizing or at least taste for sugar content while making the marinade.

I started this recipe on a Sunday morning even though I was planning a different dinner for that day. I simply cooked the meat, let it cool and packed it away.  Later that week when I was ready for an easy but flavorful dinner, I just made some rice as a side and heated it according to the recipe directions below.  This is not a traditional “Al Pastor” recipe, but it has similar flavors and takes much less time.  Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Add 1 handful of cilantro, garlic, chipotles in adobo, cider, and 1/2 of the pineapple chunks to a food processor and pulse.
  2. Add the cubed pork roast to your slow cooker and cover in the marinade. Stir to combine.
  3. Cook over low for up to 8 hours or on high for 4. The pork should be falling apart and fully cooked through. Add in about half of the remaining pineapple right before turning the pork off of the heat, and stir to combine.
  4. To make the corn salsa combine the heated corn, jalapeño, 1/4 handful of chopped cilantro, 1 tbsp of lime juice, and 1/4 chopped red onion. Stir to combine and season with salt to taste.
  5. To serve, sautéed some sliced red onion and bell pepper in a pan over medium heat until brown. Add some of the pork and allow to crisp slightly before turning.
  6. Once the pork is fully heated through, serve over the rice and garnish accordingly. (I like a mix of avocado, cheddar, green onion, cilantro and freshly squeezed lime for mine!)

Welcome to Cooking in Cleveland! I want to share delicious, healthy and approachable recipes with you. I want to help highlight local Cleveland artisans and events and put a focus on using local foods!
  • Brainstorming future goals and plans for @cooking_in_cleveland this evening with a #dairyfree #decaflatte and a snuggly puppy by my side.  So grateful for everyone that has followed along so far.  I can't wait for what's to come! #wordpressbloggergirl #staytuned  #nespressomoment
  • Sorry I've been so MIA, but I've  been working on a rebrand for the blog. Stay tuned for good things ahead!! #cookingincleveland #foodblogger #beginningblogger #iphonephoto
  • While on the #Whole30 challenge, the unthinkable happened…I learned to LIKE cauliflower.  I blame this recipe and some of the other stir fry dishes we made that used fresh cauliflower rice.

This dish is mostly #Whole30 compliant except for any additions you might make to this recipe such as #Sriracha for added heat or swapping soy sauce instead of the coconut aminos.

Check out the link in my bio and let me know what you think!
