Mexican Pork Discada Tacos (Discada De Puerco)

mexican pork discada taco recipe

This is very easy pork (Puerco) discada recipe that is very close to the real thing.  The only thing missing is the disc plow to cook it on.

Street tacos are an all-time favorite food of mine and I eat them every Tuesday morning.  Our local Mexican bistro has the best authentic Mexican food I’ve had and I’ve eaten Mexican cuisine in many-many states and cities.

On taco Tuesday my bag is filled with carnitas, pork rind, lengua, and Cabeza tacos. You can also make this discada ahead of time by combining all ingredients. They cook together well.
