It was a happy accident when I discovered that the Thermomix could replace my slow cooker for my casserole needs. With only 60 minutes on the clock, how could it ever replace the deliciousness of tender meat that had been on low heat for hours? Pretty darn easy, it seems! We just love this Thermomix stew recipe, it has become a staple in our house.
It has been featured in the following podcasts:
This recipe is super easy, and should be tailored to your own taste. There are so many options!
Bec’s Go-To Stew
- 1 onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 chilli
- 1 handful fresh parsley
- 700g diced meat (I use lamb)
- 400g crushed tomatoes (can)
- 500g diced pumpkin (or use a mixture of pumpkin / sweet potato)
- 350g mixed veggies (I have used a combination of cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, capsicum, squash… check out what you’ve got in your fridge)
- 1 tablespoon stock concentrate
- 100g red wine
|Put onion (quartered), chilli (whole, with top removed), garlic (skinned) and parsley in TM bowl. Chop Speed 5.5 for 2 seconds.|
|Push down the sides. Add 30g olive oil. 100 deg, Speed Soft + Reverse, 4 mins.|
|Add meat, pumpkin, tomatoes, veggies, stock & red wine. It should be a tight fit. Put lid on and MC in (note: MC will probably sit up from the lid a bit).|
|Set 100 deg, Speed Soft + Reverse, 60 mins.|
It’s that easy! Don’t worry about the fact the TM bowl is full. The nature of the veggies used mean that the volume will reduce, the meat will cook beautifully and your super easy, nutritious and delicious dinner will be ready in an hour.
