  1. Step 1

    Combine spice mix and flour in a bowl. Add the beef and toss to coat. Shake off and reserve the excess flour mixture. Heat half the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook beef, in batches, stirring, for 3-4 mins or until browned. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Heat remaining oil in the saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, capsicum and garlic, stirring, for 7 mins or until the capsicum softens. Add reserved flour mixture and cook, stirring, for 1 min. Return the beef to the pan with the tomato, stock, cinnamon and ½ cup (125ml) water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 1 hour.
  3. Step 3

    Discard the cinnamon. Add the beans and simmer, uncovered, for 30-40 mins or until the sauce thickens and the beef is tender. Season.
  4. Step 4

    Combine sour cream and lime juice in a bowl. Season. Serve the beef mixture with rice, sour cream mixture, avocado, coriander and lime wedges.
