  1. Step 1

    To make the pulled pork, heat half the oil in a large flameproof casserole pan over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for 5 mins each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Heat remaining oil in the pan. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Add the paprika, cumin, coriander, oregano, cinnamon and chilli. Cook, stirring, for 1 min or until aromatic. Return the pork to the pan with the tomato and stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Step 3

    Cover and cook for 3 hours or until the pork is very tender. Use tongs to transfer the pork to a heatproof bowl. Use 2 forks to coarsely shred the pork. Return pork to the pan with the beans. Season. (To freeze now, see tip below.)
  4. Step 4

    Combine cabbage, coriander, lime juice and oil in a bowl. Season. Divide cabbage mixture among taco shells with pulled pork, radish and avocado.

    Serve with sour cream and lime wedges
