  • 1 cup beef broth

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste
  • 3 pounds boneless beef chuck, cut into 3 to 4 chunks

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 to 10 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
