      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

  1. * Place parsley and garlic in clean bowl chop 5 sec/speed 7.
    * Add frozen beef (or chicken) to your bowl.
    * Use the Turbo button for approx 7 seconds or till a fine mince is achieved.
    *Add flour, eggs and stock
    *Mix 8 sec/speed 5
    *Spray varoma tray pop your disposable gloves on and roll balls of mixture and place on top tray, set aside.

    *Place onion, garlic, butter and oil in the bowl, chop for 3 sec/speed 7. Scrape down sides.
    * Sauté for 3 mins/ varoma/ speed 2
    *Add carrots, beetroot, celery chop 6 sec / speed 5

    * Remove meatballs and place in thermoserver
    * Replace MC and puree the sauce for 2 min / speed 8, slowly increasing speed from 1 to 8. I take about 50 secs to get to speed 8, there will be a lot of steam escaping so please take it slow!
    *Serve meatballs with sauce. There will be plenty of sauce so you may want to set some aside and freeze for later on!
    *Add your own salt and pepper to taste.
