Usually my taco shindig takes at least two days to handle everything prep, marination, sides etc. all from scratch. I craved some tacos though so I cheated today. Went to my favorite taqueria by work, bought tortillas and got some house salsas, then went to Ralphs(Kroger) for the protein and the rest of the stuff.

I found some nice flap meat and a seasoned tenderloin also caught my eye. Grabbed that also for my pork fix.

Seasoned the beef by making a quick carne asada rub with what I have in my cupboards and I have most everything needed

Butterflied, tweaked the already seasoned t-loin with a few extra spices and gave it a dust of SM Cherry to replicate the sweetness a pineapple otherwise gives al pastor pork

Blackened the pork first on the retrofit BS for the al pastor effect

If those are what you make "cheating" I can't imagine how good they would be if you didn't cheat. Delicious looking dinner for sure Sako.

Oh, yes please!

Great thought about the SM Cherry for the Al Pastor effect.... I would've never thought of that! Grub looks fantastic, and I'm rather jealous that you have the ability to "cheat" like that.

Nice job on the tacos, Sako!

I've been meaning to tell you that you should think about eating them more often...

Binge is right. I had it Saturday twice, Monday, yesterday one for lunch and obviously for dinner. :loco:

Taco and quickie in the same sentence I just had to look... Glad I did even though it could have had another meaning. Nice work Sako.
