Here are the recipes we chose this week:

Recipe 1Chunky Pork and Veggie Chilli (from Me and My Thermie)

This is a delicious Thermomix pork recipe that we gobbled down in no time at all. It was flavoursome and the pork was cooked perfectly. You can have this recipe ready in less than 30 minutes. We took Lesley’s advice and whizzed up the tomatoes and chickpeas before we started rather than having whole chickpeas throughout. Great idea.

Recipe 2Pork and Eggplant Curry (from Food 4 Thought)

This Thermomix pork recipe is a curry that has a beautiful lemongrass flavour. The eggplant really takes this flavour on too. We didn’t include (simply due to not having them on hand…) the coriander root, the shrimp paste and the coconut sugar. It was a VERY easy recipe to make. We served it with plain white rice and stored the leftovers in the freezer.

Recipe 3Spicy Thermomix Pulled Pork (from The 4 Blades)

Ok, so this recipe also employs the use of a slow cooker, but the seasoning and the ‘pulling’ is done in the Thermomix. It is really quite spicy and salty so consider adjusting the amount of cayenne that you use, or adjust how much salt you rub over the meat. You can use a piece of pork (a rolled shoulder is best) as big as your slow cooker will allow as to ‘pull’ the pork you will break it up into smaller bits anyway. This is a family favourite and we have been tweaking it for over 12 months now! This feeds a big crowd and would go well with some tortillas or tacos. Bec likes it with eggs for breakfast. Store in individual portions in the freezer.

Here are some cool tips from this podcast…
– Save the white part of lemongrass stalks in a ziplock bag in the freezer before they turn into woody spears that can never be used again!
– Buy whole spices and grind as you need them so they have a fresher flavour, and consider heating them up before use for the same reason… just remember to grind them BEFORE you start cooking!
