Put the onions in an oven proof dish (one with a lid)

Mix the garlic, spices and tomato puree together together, rub over the beef and place it on top of the onions.

Put the lid on and cook in the oven for around 6 hours.

If it dries out add a splash of water or stock.

Once the meat has cooked use two forks to shred the beef, stir well. Replace the lid and cook for another 30 - 60 minutes.
