Pork doesn’t get enough action in the taco game. Occasionally, you’ll see a carnitas or pork belly taco on the menu, but these meats take a while to prepare.

For a quick pork filling, use pork steaks. They’re cut from the pork shoulder. Usually the shoulder needs to cook slow and low, but when it’s sliced thin like a steak, it grills up fast.

And because it’s a fattier piece of meat, it will be nice a juicy. I like to think of it as the ribeye of the pig.

This recipe includes a quick chipotle rub made with chipotle chile pepper and other standard spices. I like to rub one side of the meat and let it sweat for about 15 minutes before flipping it and rubbing the other side.

For more intense flavor, you can let the rub rest on the meat even longer in the refrigerator.

After about 15 minutes on the grill, let the meat rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing. Pull together all of your toppings. Some of my favorites include salsa verde, guacamole, purple cabbage and white onions. Serve them alongside a smoked margarita or smoked mojito.
