THERMOMIX ® RECIPE
- 1 heaped teaspoon cumin seeds
- 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
- 5 cloves, whole
- 1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
- 1/2 teaspoon rock salt
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, large sprigs, leaves only
- 2 tablespoons Fresh Lemon thyme, leaves only
- 1 Orange, zest and juice separate
- 5-7 cloves garlic, skin peeled
- 4 heaped teaspoons paprika, smoked or sweet
- 6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, (approx 80gm)
- 260 grams Tomato purée (passata)
- 15 grams brown sugar
- 10 bay leaves
- 75 grams olive oil
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees or light your barbecue/webber.
Place cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cloves, black peppercorns and rock salt into mixing bowl and mill 30 seconds, speed 9. Set aside.
Place rosemary leaves, lemon thyme (or thyme), orange zest only, and garlic into mixing bowl and chop 10-15 seconds, speed 7.
Add back in the ground spices from the first step, plus orange juice, paprika, balsamic vinegar, tomato passata, brown sugar, bay leaves and olive oil and heat 10 minutes, 100 degrees, , speed 1 to infuse the herbs into the oil.
Rub your chosen meat all over with the marinade, really getting into all the meat. Put the meat in a baking/roasting tray and pour the remainder of the marinade over the meat. Place your meat in the over/bbq/webber until tender (time will vary based on meat chosen, weight & method of cooking).
We finish the meat off on a hot bbq/webber to really sear it. But remember to keep turning and brushing/basting the meat with the sticky sauce left in the tray until you've built up a lovely caramalised/sticky crust.
Serve with vegetables/salad, etc.
This marinade will do one of the following but is easy to double and do several types of meat for christmas/special occassions:
1.8kg chicken, spatchcocked OR
2kgs of chicken thighs (as in picture) OR
3kgs of leg of lamb OR
2kg pork rib racks
