Recipe's preparation

    Beef Chow Mein
  1. Add rice vermicelli to bowl and chop on speed 7 for 5 seconds.  Set aside.

    (If making mince in TM, do this now, and set aside).

    Add celery, carrots, onion, garlic and zucchini to bowl.  Chop for 4 seconds on speed 5.

    Add olive oil and saute for 6 minutes/Varoma/Counter-clockwise operation/Speed 2.

    Add mince and saute for 6 minutes/Varoma/Counter-clockwise operation/Speed 2.

    Add remaining ingredients, except cabbage, to bowl.  Place shredded cabbage into Varoma dish and place Varoma on top.

    Cook for 15 minutes/Varoma/Counter-clockwise operation/Speed 2.

    Stir cabbage through meat mixture before serving.

     

    This is similar to the recipe I used to make without my Thermomix.  I used this recipe as a guide for cooking times, etc:  //www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=7032.0

    Easy chow mein, while it is not bland, it isn’t very flavourful. We added heaps more veggies, and steamed the cabbage on top for the entire cooking time, not just the end. it is a good recipe for kids, Miss 6 did most of the work tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by heidi_hi on 19. January 2017 - 17:40.

    Quite possibly the ugliest looking meal I've made but so tasty! And a winner for my kids who need their veg hidden in the meals.

    I had an issue with bad scorching on the bottom of the bowl but I had reduced the liquids as per the comments so perhaps that was why? I also upped the seasoning with extra soy, kecap manis and curry powder and still could've gone with more.

    I also used only a small amount of cabbage and just popped in the bowl with everything else so it cooked down well.

    This made a huge serve so a good budget dinner with staples for those wanting to feed a crowd.

    Submitted by bmw113 on 7. August 2016 - 16:33.

    Love the taste. Listened to all advice regarding soy and water and adjusted accordingly. The cabbage doesn't quite cook in the varoma in the time given so I add boiling water to the empty bowl and cook it a bit longer. This helps to clean the bottom of the bowl too.

    This is a regular in our home. Can I please ask you to change the steps of the method? Can you please add as a first step to shred the cabbage in the thermo then set aside into the varoma? I always forget to do this then when I get to the 'cook the shredded cabbage' instruction I end up cutting it by hand because the thermie bowl is already full. 5 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    This was popular with my 5y/o, 3y/o, 9 month old and husband! That has never happened before tmrc_emoticons.)

    I only added 20g olive oil and turned temp up to 100 degrees for the last 15mins of cooking and that was more than enough. Also reduced water to 600g.

    Not the prettiest dish to serve up but certainly tasty. so lovely to find a recipe which doesn't ask for a packet of chicken noodle soup (with all the nasties!)

    Made it last night, with the stalk of a broccoli head as I didn't have zucchini, and extra rice as I didn't have any noodles.

    Good taste (I'll use a bit more curry powder next time), easy meal.

    With extra veggies this fed 5, with 2 going back for seconds, and 2 serves left for lunch, so great and cheap way to feed a crowd.

    I was going to convert my mum's recipe, that I've loved since I was little, but then I found this, and there was no need to!  It tastes just the same - thanks so much!  The only changes I made were to use chow mein noodles instead of rice vermicelli noodles, and chop for 1 second on speed 5.  I also added 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce, as per mum's recipe.  I didn't have any celery, so put in some broccoli instead.  I love the clever use of the varoma in this.  You could even add more vegies in there if you wanted.  As it was, it totally filled my 2.6 litre thermoserver.  Yum!

    Made this tonight, it was simple and easy to follow. It was very yum although i made a couple of changes, i didn't add rice or noodles (my mum is on paleo) and i think next i would chop the veggies less because i like my veggies chunky but i did mince my own meat and it turned out great.

    I made this last night at my eldest daughter's suggestion. I didn't put any noodles or celery in the recipe but I added 100g bean sprouts (which I steamed in the varoma with the cabbage) as that is how my mum used to make it. Everyone loved it and my husband has asked me to make it again tonight even going so far as to say "you should have a batch of this on the go all the time!". Thank you for a great all time favourite recipe and one which uses the varoma as well. I will be recommending this one to my Thermomix customers  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I really love beef chow mein,

    Submitted by BlingFish on 5. April 2014 - 13:29.

    I really love beef chow mein, and this recipe is great!  I didn't use onion or celery. I think it is perfect with the following tweaks:

    *flavour: I found it didn't have as much flavour as I liked the first time, so made it using 2 teaspoons curry powder and 60g soy sauce the second time.  I

    *consistency: I found the mince was too pulverised the first time so I cooked it on spoon reverse the second time, stopping every 5 minutes to scrape the bottom of the bowl with the tmx spatula.  This also resolved the burning issue - the first time there was a thin film of burnt 'stuff' that took ages to clean.  The second time there was a thicker film that came off immediately.

    Submitted by Rachaelhw on 7. January 2014 - 19:31.

    The flavour was nice but I had some issues with preparation. Firstly I had a serious fight with the vermicelli noodles, trying to break them up enough to fit in, then having them just twist around the blades. I ended up with noodles scattered throughout the kitchen! I realised later that I put the whole packet of mince in which was 100g too much whic resulted in it being too full and burning the base! Oh well, will follow precisely in future tmrc_emoticons.-)
