Pitmaster Al Pastor BBQ Rub Shaker (90g Rub Shaker)
Mexican inspired shawarma seasoning, ideal for tacos, kebabs and spit grilled meats. Al Pastor is one we just can’t ignore and is one of the most popular taco fillings in Mexico and a street food staple. Originally brought to Mexico by the Lebanese, this shawarma style pork is cooked on a vertical spit with pineapple capping off the meat. The juices from the pineapple drip down the meat as it cooks and the enzymes help tenderise the meat as it cooks . The Smokey Carter rub has been developed using some of the more traditional spices such as cumin, ancho chilli, guajillo chilli, Mexican oregano, achiote (from the annatto seed) and coriander. Having also used vinegar powder to help recreate the enzymes from the pineapple. As the meat cooks on the spit, it develops an amazing orange-red colour which is from this unique spice blend and the achiote. Once grilled on the spit the meat is then carved into a soft corn tortilla and served with fresh coriander, pineapple, onion and then topped with your choice of traditional salsa and sauces.
You don’t have to cook using a rotisserie. Our seasoning works just as well sprinkled over a bashed out chicken breast and pan fried in a little oil. You can also dust it over steak, chicken kebabs or use as a seasoning for roast chicken.
