4 corn tortillas, small (25g ea) (or wheat)

14 avocado (medium) sliced

Methodbased on 4 servings
1

To make the onion pickle, add onion, vinegar, salt and pepper to a jar with a lid. Add sufficient hot water to cover, close tightly with lid and shake well. Set aside while you make the tacos. 

2

Heat a large cast iron pan, non-stick frypan or flat top grill over high heat. 

3

Whilst the pan heats, season the beef with salt. Divide into the equal portions the same number as the tortillas and roll into balls.

4

Spray the hot pan with oil then add beef meatballs and flatten with a spatula until they are spread evenly into very flat patties. Season with salt. 

5

Cook patties for a few minutes until brown, turn and top with cheese. Cover each pattie with a tortilla, like a blanket, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until beef is browned and slightly charred and the cheese has melted. Turn the heat off and rest for a few minutes.

6

Carefully remove from the pan, turn over and divide between serving plates.

7

Top with avocado slices, cabbage and drained onion pickle, season to taste and serve.
