Preheat oven to 160°C/ 320°C.
Add the beef to a large, deep pan or casserole dish, drizzle with the oil and coat all over with salt, pepper, chipotle paste and fajita seasoning. Add the onion, garlic, passata and beef stock to the pan, cover and transfer to the oven. Slow cook the beef for 3 hours, checking once every hour to make sure it’s not drying out or sticking - if it does, then just add more beef stock and rice it a stir.
Make the pickled red onions. Add the water, vinegar, sugar, salt and peppercorns to a mason jar, shake the jar until mixed, add the red onion, seal and leave to pickle whilst the beef is cooking.
Once cooked, transfer the beef to a large bowl and pull apart using two forks, add in some of the tomato sauce from the pan and mix it in with the beef.
In a medium bowl, mix together the soured cream, tomato sauce (from the pan) and lime juice.
Make your rice bowl. Lay a bed of rice, add the shredded beef, then top with soured cream mixture and more tomato sauce. Serve with pickled red onions and pico de Gallo.
