Mmm! This may seem like a long list of ingredients, but it should go together fairly quickly and the results are worth it. I like flour tortillas - Costco has good ones--Tortilla Land Uncooked. Found this one in the paper. Allow 2 hours (or less) to marinate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor combine the 1 c chopped pineapple, garlic cumin salt chiles and vinegar; process until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a bowl or ziploc, add pork turning to coat all the meat.
  3. Refrigerate for NO MORE THAN 2 hours. Gets mooshy if left longer than that.
  4. Preheat grill to hot.
  5. Discard marinade.
  6. Place half of the meat in a single layer on the grill and cook, without moving for about 5 minute.
  7. Transfer cooked meat to baking pan and repeat with remaining meat.
  8. While meat cooks, arrange pineapple slices around meat and cook on each side until fruit has nice grill marks and is slightly caramelized, 5-6 minute per side.
  9. Allow meat to rest at least 5 minute before slicing into thin slices against the grain.
  10. Chop grilled pineapple into small bits.
  11. Pour any juices from meat and pineapple over meat.
  12. Serve with listed condiments wrapped in warm tortillas.
