Lomito Pastor

Mexico's Deli

Serious Eats
The pastor is roasted and cut from a traditional trompo, a vertical spit. The other porcine component is from a loin that had been marinated for a day with ten different spices and herbs. Presented as attractively as an inherently messy torta can be, small pieces of the moist meats are mixed with chunks of pineapple and some mild asadero cheese, then topped with avocado, slices of tomato, and some raw onion. An enjoyable mix of understated, complementary flavors, it is even better with a few slugs of the slightly smoky, deep reddish salsa that accompanies it.
