      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  2. Peel and chop tomatoes.

  3. Peel and chop carrots.

  4. Peel and chop brown onions into quarters.

- This is only suitable for the TM5. If cooking in an earlier model please reduce quantities as it fills to capacity in the TM5.

- If you are time poor, purchase diced beef from the butcher or supermarket. 

- You can substitute the tomatoes for a 400g tinned tomatoes. Be aware that this could impact on flavour as tinned tomatoes are typically more acidic. You may wish to add 1tsp of sugar to help balance your flavours.

- For a gluten free dish, either leave out the flour or replace with rice flour or cornflour.

- This dish goes very well with mashed/riced potato or rice and steamed brocolli.

- Vegan option: Replace beef with 600g of Firm Tofu and for stock I recommend Massel Beef Ultracubes which are vegan but have a good depth of flavour for the base of the sauce. At Step 7 place Tofu in a bag with 1/4 cup of plain flour (of your choice) and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to coat Tofu then place in mixing bowl, following instructions. At Step 8 cook for 45 minutes only. (Please note I have not tested this in the TM5 yet - just using conventional cooking so please let me know if there are any issues).
