  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 140°C. Rub the pork all over with taco seasoning. Heat 2 tbs of the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook for 2 mins each side or until browned. Transfer to a roasting pan. Top with onion, garlic, salsa and stock. Cover with foil. Bake for 6 hours or until meat is very tender. Set aside for 10 mins to rest.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, use a small serrated knife to cut down the side of corn to release the kernels. Heat remaining oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add corn kernels. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until golden. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in beans, tomato, spring onion and coriander.
  3. Step 3

    Whisk the sour cream, lime rind and lime juice in a small bowl. Season. Use 2 forks to coarsely shred pork. Serve with corn mixture, sour cream mixture, cheddar, tortillas and lime wedges.
