    • Combine the chipotle rub and honey into a paste. Place all over the beef and spread evenly. Clingfilm the dish and leave to marinate for at least 2 hours in the fridge.

    • Heat the oven to 160°C. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a flameproof casserole and brown the beef in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the a pan. Then remove and set aside. Add the remaining oil and fry the chopped shallots, crushed garlic, coriander, cumin and chipotle paste, until aromatic and the shallots and garlic are translucent.

    • Remove the meat and reduce the sauce until thick and syrupy. Carve the meat and put it on a platter or back in the casserole. Garnish with the onion, avocado and tomato.
