This is a quick and easy to prepare recipe for pork tacos. I love the combination of spices that the meat is marinated in because it's not too hot and not too mild. It has the perfect amount of flavor and spice that goes beautifully with the recommended toppings.

Make a mixture of salt and pepper in a small dish. Stir to combine and rub generously onto the pork shoulder. In a separate, small bowl, combine the garlic, ground ancho chile, and cumin. Massage this rub into the pork shoulder and then cover and marinate for one hour at room temperature.

Once the meat has finished marinating, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot enough to fry, add the meat to the pan and let cook for about five to seven minutes or until browned. Remove from the heat and keep warm.

Warm your tortillas (or fry them, whichever you prefer). Assemble the tacos by adding the meat first, followed by the recommended toppings.
