  1. Step 1

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook, turning, for 5 mins or until browned all over. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Add the onion and carrot to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until just tender. Add the garlic, coriander and cumin and cook, stirring, for 30 secs or until aromatic. Stir in the dry marinade.
  3. Step 3

    Place beef in slow cooker. Add the stock and onion mixture. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, for 6 hours on high (or 8 hours on low) or until beef is very tender. Transfer the beef to a heatproof bowl. Use 2 forks to coarsely shred the beef. Return to slow cooker and stir to coat in the sauce.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the corn and cook, covered, shaking the pan occasionally, for 3 mins or until lightly charred.
  5. Step 5

    Divide tortillas among serving plates. Top with the beef, corn, avocado, spring onion, sour cream and coriander.

    Serve with sriracha or chilli sauce

    In the oven: To make beef brisket without a slow cooker, cook in a roasting pan, covered tightly with foil, at 150°C for 6 hours or until very tender.
