Meatloaf with Mushroom Sauce in the Varoma
I used the Varoma for the first time tonight. I did meatloaf with the mushroom sauce (page 100 of spiral bound Thermomix cookbook). The hubby was VERY impressed!
My only concern was the mushroom sauce was way too salty (must have used too much TM vegetable stock) and it didn't make enough of the sauce. I ended up making a gravy and adding the mushroom sauce. The recipe said 300mL of water and I think if I had doubled it, it may still have not been enough.
Has anyone else tried this recipe? Cheers Lisa
Hi Lisa. Yes! I made this recipe last week for my family (nine of us) and with some potato and veg on the side it was a huge meal. I just doubled the recipe for the mushroon sauce and it was plenty! I used a whole packet of pre-sliced mushrooms from the shop - I think it was 500g - but the rest I just doubled. I didn't put any extra salt or pepper either as I find the TM veg. stock is salty enough for us. Also, I did not use the Wine but added a little extra water. I don't know if that made a difference?
Also, I just remembered that I did put a piece of baking paper under the meatloaf in the varoma dish. So the juices would not have dripped down into my mushroom sauce. I wonder if that would have made yours a little saltier? Anyway, give it another go, sometimes you need to tweek things a little to suit your taste. We loved this recipe too.
Good luck, Wendy.
Hi Thermo world new friends, I just had my home demo yesterday with Narelle and I can't wait for my little thermi to come, I need to get some suggestions as to what I can make first, I was going to make the TM stock first, then can anyone suggest what to make, please help, loving this new website of thermi land.
we had the exact same problem very salty
Yes mine too thick and salty - next time i will add extra liquid as too much evaporated in the cooking under meatloaf, rescued it with boiled water and sour cream to make pouring sauce.
