Lamb Shanks in the Thermomix?

Posted by Bee & John on July 7, 2013 at 7:15 PM

Can you cook Lamb Shanks in the thermomix?  I didn't think so but thought I would find out whether they really WERE possible. (besides..... I get to show off the lovely Oval Themoserver which is July's "with purchase" and for any current owners who have a demo in July (2013).

The thing with Shanks is - they not only have to cook.... but get very tender and have that "fall apart" stickiness that makes them so very delicious!  Could you get that with just a steamer?

As promised, here is my blog for the dish at the In the Mix cooking classes that amazed me the most!

No compromises, healthy Stir Fry Beef!  Yup, steamed steak, stir fried veggies, steamed rice!

So... you don't have the In the Mix cookbook?  Poor you!

Anything to watch out for?  Nope!  Easy

Steaming with the Thermomix

Posted by Bee & John on September 2, 2011 at 6:35 PM

I have mentiond my sister's party she catered for a couple of times, but I want to raise a very good point that she raised....

For nibbles, she steamed some mini dim sims that she bought.  EVERYone loved them - I saw many people asking her where she got them from!  When I added my request, she said to me quietly - they are just cheap ones, but what the other people don't know, is that the Thermomix steams them properly and makes them taste better!

Chicken and Bacon Rolls

Posted by Bee & John on April 11, 2011 at 8:23 AM

This recipe is from the Meat on the Menu cookbook.

It is proof that I didn't cook much before hand, that I didn't realise that what I was putting into the chicken rolls was stuffing, until it was already made and on the chicken.  Duh!

I hate stuffing.... LOL... although these were really lovely (but I will use a different filling next time!)

Super easy, really yummy!  

To be honest, I didn't think that they would have cooked in the time allotted for them to s...

Chicken and Cashews

Posted by Bee & John on July 5, 2010 at 10:32 PM

I have been postponing this recipe - because 200g of chicken just didn't look enough.  But, and it sure surprised me, it certainly was!

Super easy and quick, although there is a mid step so it isn't a leave and pick up the kids from school recipe.

Steam the chicken in the Varoma - take out the rice and add the veggies, sprinkle with sesame oil and seasame seeds, add handful of cashews, steam some more.  Make the sauce, mix.

Meatloaf (Varoma)

Posted by Bee & John on May 8, 2010 at 4:16 AM

Was really lovely... however there were some lessons learnt....


LESSON: don't use bought mince unless it is VERY lean (ours WAS lean and everything yummy... but can see that would have been a problem ie: greasy sauce) TMX ground mince, from good steak, would have been better. Bought mince is also finer in texture - slightly chunkier would have been better.

LESSON: and this is the REAL lesson... if the meat is not cooked and you put i...
