Plant-based Pork-Free Pastor 12.3oz (4 portions)
Handcrafted by artisan cooks, Asanté’s proprietary plant-based protein filets* are slow-cooked with modern culinary techniques to have a unique, juicy, firm, and meaty texture.
Marinated in a sauce made from fresh and organic ingredients from local growers. As many abuelitas, taqueros and chefs would say, the secret is in the Salsa. We use dried pepper mix, orange juice, onions, apple cider vinegar, pineapple, cilantro, annatto seed powder, corn oil, garlic, salt, lime juice, cinnamon, black pepper, oregano, cloves, and cumin.
Our Pastor is one of the most popular dishes in Mexico City. A Pastor is usually cooked roasted like a kebab and eaten in a Taco or in a Gringa (flour tortilla and plant-based cheese).
Our Pastor is fully cooked and only needs a personal touch to enjoy an authentic experience.
Tastes delicious cold and can be great for salads or pasta, or hot in Tacos, enchiladas, or bowls mixed with rice or noodles (great pairing with Asian food). For extra “authenticity” add sliced pineapple and guacamole.
We are certain that our kindlier version will help us to transition into a plant-based diet.
*Our plant-based protein filets are made from wholesome ingredients: wheat gluten, pea protein, whole grain amaranth flour, corn oil, potato flour, nopal flour, bamboo fiber, and salt.
