Steak in the Thermomix? No way!

If you have been listening to the podcast for awhile you will know that Joe has never really found his way to ‘steamed meat’. As a steak lover, even the idea that we did this experiment to make steak in the Thermomix is a bit beyond comprehension. And yet, we can report back… this steak in the Thermomix is quite delicious!

Thermomix Lamb

We created this recipe for Episode 109 of the podcast: Thermomix Lamb Recipes.

Firstly, we created the yummy pesto sauce in the Thermomix, using our Basil Pesto Genovese Sauce as the base and making a few recipe-specific tweaks.

Next up, we prepared the lamb steaks on the upper tray of the Varoma covered with a layer of wet baking paper and covered them with the pesto sauce. To make the meal go a little further, we also cooked up some potatoes. Of course, this is optional: you can make the steak in the Thermomix without the mashed potato.

We steamed up the potatoes and the steak in the Thermomix, quickly seared the steak, mashed up the potatoes and served the steak in slices on the mash. Yummo!

15 minutes in the Varoma gave a very nice ‘medium’ result, as you can see in the pictures. We felt that the one minute browning on either side in the pan was imperative to the end result.

We encourage you to give this basil pesto version of steak in the Thermomix a try. Lamb steaks are not the cheapest cut of meat, but we found them to be particularly delicious!
