We were so impressed to discover that, with a Thermomix, the previously messy task of making rissoles was made quick and REALLY easy. AND no need for any fillers like breadcrumbs or flour.
Ingredients (makes about 8 BIG patties, or about 20 regular sized patties):
2 handfuls of coriander
2 handfuls of continental parsley
2 cloves of garlic
1kg beef mince (or, make your own in the Thermomix!
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp paprika
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt / pepper to taste
1. Add coriander, parsley and garlic to the TM bowl. Chop Speed 7 / 5 seconds (listen for the sound change). Scrape down sides.
2. Add the mince, egg and seasonings (all the other ingredients) to the bowl. Combine Reverse+Speed 3 / 20 seconds. Note: the mixture should be well incorporated, if not, keep going!
4. Form into inch-thick patties with wet hands.
5. Cook on the stove-top: 5 minutes on one side with the lid on + 5 minutes on the other side lid off.
Cook on the BBQ: as per usual rissoles
Cook on the sandwich press: for a thin “McDonald’s-style” patty
How easy are these Thermomix rissoles? Yum too! We discussed them in Episode 29 of The 4 Blades podcast.
They can be made ahead and stored for lunches. They are great with salad!
