Taco Tuesday

A neighbor gave me this recipe for a meat rub that makes delicious tacos! 

2 or 3 cloves of garlic

2 teaspoons of salt

1 teaspoon of black pepper

1/4 cup of chili powder

1 teaspoon of cumin

1 teaspoon of oregano

1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 cup of red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon of olive oil

Mix it all together and rub all over a pork roast or chicken or beef.  Cover and refrigerate over night.  Then cook it according to the type of meat you used.

Last time I cut up a pork roast into 1 inch pieces.  I put the rub and pork pieces into a ziplock bag and squished it all around to coat all of the pieces.  Then I left it in the refrigerator over night.  The next evening I cooked it over medium high heat in a large skillet.  I served it on tortillas with lettuce tomatoes and onions and chopped cilantro.  It was yummy!  My husband especially liked it!

Try it with this rice, my favorite Spanish rice recipe.
