  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 160°C. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the beef, in 2 batches, for 3-4 mins each side or until browned. Transfer to a large deep roasting pan with the brown onion, garlic, cumin, ground coriander, paprika, sugar and chipotle sauce or chilli sauce, if using. Season. Add beer or stock and stir to combine. Cover with baking paper and foil. Roast for 21/2-3 hours or until beef is tender. Cool slightly. Use 2 forks to shred the meat.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, place the sour cream in a small bowl. Combine chopped coriander, lime rind and lime juice in a jug or bowl. Season. Use a stick blender to blend until smooth. Add to sour cream and use a spoon to gently marble.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the tortillas following packet directions. Divide the tortillas among serving plates. Top with beef mixture, cabbage, red onion and fetta. Season. Serve with the sour cream mixture.

    Serve with thinly sliced long red chilli, coriander leaves and lime wedges
