Pulled beef with a sticky-sweet barbecue sauce and hearty pinto beans is a first-class dinner, just scoop up with tortilla chips and enjoy. A glass of classic spicy Bordeaux Superieur will cut through the richness of the meat and the big flavours of the sauce.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the beef in a baking dish and cook following the packet instructions; shred. Pour over the sachet of barbecue sauce (supplied in the pack), then add the pinto beans and tinned tomatoes. Mix well to combine.
  2. Return to the oven for 10 minutes, or until heated throughout. Meanwhile, prepare the soured cream dip. Put the red onion and soured cream in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Divide the beef between 4 bowls. Add a handful of lettuce to each and a dollop of the soured cream dip. Serve with the tortilla chips and a drizzle of barbecue sauce, if you like.
