Tips for cooking pork.
When we are preparing the pork for our tacos it is necessary to take into account certain aspects that will allow us to obtain a rich and juicy meat. The first one consists of marinating the pork in advance, this favors the absorption of spices, which will prevent the meat from drying out during cooking. If we are going to make the meat in a pan, we must cook it over medium because if we do it over high heat we are at greater risk of the pig burning or being dry, and when cooking it over low heat it can remain raw in the center.
When we bake the pork, it is very important to preheat the oven, keep a good temperature control and cover the piece of meat with aluminum foil, this helps us to make the cooking more homogeneous.

Between the sauces that best accompany the pork tacos we have the sour ones with large contents of lemon or orange juice such as chipotle sauce, this makes the flavor of the meat more intense and slightly counteract the fat, others widely used are the traditional raw red with tomatoes and chili, as well as pico de gallo and guacamole with Serrano chile.
