History of pork tacos

It is said that the Spanish conquistadors were the ones who entered the pork meat to Mexico during the colonization used in the first tacos, remaining in force today, in addition many ingredients have been added that have complemented this typical Mexican food in a tradition of this culture.

The pig offers us a juicy, tender and very attractive meat because of its high fat content which influences its flavor, also we can take advantage of other parts such as the head, ears, tail and the ideal skin to prepare a rich pork rind.

Types of cooking and meat presentation forms.

To prepare the meat there are several methods, one of the most common is to roast it through the use of a throne, very visible when we acquire a taco in a street stall, another alternative is baked both techniques allow the cooking to be uniform and the Meat is ready. You can also cook on the barbecue giving it a very characteristic smoky flavor, the type of grill used being of importance.

With the pork portions ready you can perform several procedures that will give a delicious presentation to the filling of the tacos, which consists of shredding, slicing, stewing or sauteing.

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.

Most popular sauces.

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.

Most popular pork tacos.

Tacos al pastor are the most demanded, originating in the state of Puebla and consumed throughout Mexico and in countries such as Canada, Spain and the United States, being an adaptation with marinated pork of the Lebanese shawarma. Among other popular tacos we have the head and the carnitas that come from Michoacán.
