Ingredients

Method

1.

Heat a 5-litre (20-cup) slow cooker on LOW. Rub beef with seasoning mix and place in cooker. Pour 1 cup (250ml) water over beef; cook, covered, for 6 hours.

2.

Remove beef from slow cooker. When cool enough to handle, shred meat coarsely using two forks. Discard half the liquid from cooker. Season remaining liquid to taste.

3.

Meanwhile, trim and wash lettuce. Shred lettuce or leave whole.

4.

Warm tortillas following packet directions. Serve lettuce and beef in tortillas, topped with sour cream and drizzled with a little of the cooking liquid. Season; serve.

Add grated cheddar in step 4, if you like.

Serve with the chunky guacamole.

Refrigerate beef mixture at the end of step 2 in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months; thaw in the fridge.
