Better Tacos al Pastor

After trying this and several other similar Al Pastor recipes, my new method of Al Pastor reverses this recipe a bit. I stole the method from America's Test Kitchen's St. Louis BBQ Pork Steak recipe. "http://www.stltoday.com/lifestyles/food-and-cooking/recipes/st-louis-bbq-pork-steaks-from-america-s-test-kitchen/article_b669c5ba-ec3e-5a38-8fdf-6c2195ccad8c.html". I simply salt and pepper the pork steaks and then grill them over a hot bed of coals. Then I put the steaks into a aluminum pan cover with the Al Pastor marinade, cover with foil, and braise for 1.5 hours. After the braise, grill again to get the crisp up the edges. My most successful Al Pastor yet!
