Al pastor isn't just a taco thang; the unique flavor can be translated into many a meal.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Lime Crema

    Coarsely chop pineapple.

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Stem and coarsely chop cilantro.

    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, 1 tsp. lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

    Separate sliced pork into a single layer and pat dry. Coarsely chop.

  2. 2

    Cook the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add sliced pork to hot pan. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Stir in cornstarch until no dry cornstarch remains in pan.

    Add 1/2 cup water, demi-glace, pineapple, seasoning rub, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often until liquid is completely evaporated and pork is coated, 4-5 minutes.

    There should be no extra liquid in pan. Remove from burner. Rest, 3 minutes.

  3. 3

    Assemble the Flautas

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface.

    Divide filling equally among tortillas, placing on one side. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Tuck one tortilla end under filling and roll tightly, placing seam side down.

  4. 4

    Toast the Flautas

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, place flautas in hot pan, seam-side down. Cook until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes.

    Replenish oil, if necessary. Gently roll to opposite side and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
