Season the beef with salt and pepper all over.

Step 4

When the oil is hot, brown the beef on all sides and transfer to a large oven proof dish.

Step 5

Add some oil to the pan and fry the onion and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes until soft and then transfer to the casserole dish with the beef and then add the stock, soy sauce, barbecue sauce, honey, gochujang and pear puree and bring to the boil, cover and slow roast in the oven for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until the beef is tender.

Pull the meat apart by using two forks to shred the beef and be sure to mix the gravy with the pull beef.
