Gravy in the Thermomix

This page should really be called... how to utilise the Thermomix when you are not using the Themomix :D

The other day we were going to have Veal Snitzels for dinner.  As great as the Thermomix is... I use a frypan for those.  But I certainly used the Thermomix!  Gravy and mashed potatoes.

First I made a cracked pepper and mushroom gravy...

  • 1 teaspoon (or more if you like it peppery) of black pepper, grind for 10-30 seconds on speed 10 (depending on whether you like your pepper cracked or ground)
  • HINT: lay some paper towelling on the closed like and then put on the MC - that effectively blocks the steam gap and you won't get a nose full of cracked pepper
  • Add some sliced mushrooms (swiss browns are yummy!!)
  • Add 20g of butter
  • Sautee for 3 minutes on 100oC, speed 1, reverse
  • add 
  • 500m of cold water and
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of corn flour
  • 1 flat tablespoon of either vegetable or chicken concentrated stock (made in the TM of course)
  • cook on 100, reverse, speed 3 for 6 minutes
Then I put the gravy into a preheated thermoserver (the 1 litre one is fantastic for gravy) and then I made mashed potatoes in the Thermomix (don't wash it first!  The gravy was going on the potatoes anyway so why not have a little in there to start with!).  All while the Snitzels were cooking.  Easy Peasy!

HINT: With the gravy, you need the speed to blend the corn flour into lump-less gravy, however this does make the mushrooms a little blended too - if you want lovely slices showing - remove the mushrooms after the sautéing stage - then add the water and cornflour, mix for 20 seconds on speed 5, then add the mushrooms again and cook on 100oC, reverse, speed 1, for 5 minutes.
