      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!

  3. Remove the pork belly from TM bowl and repeat Step 2 with the other half of the pork belly.
  4. Drain water out of the TM bowl, leaving the Blade Cover in for the next step.
  5. Slow Cooking the Pork Belly

Check halfway through to give mixture a quick stir if required.

The pork will produce more liquid during cooking time, so there should be sufficient liquid to cook the pork. If concerned, add more liquid and soy sauce and adjust the sugar/salt balance at the end.

Just before adding the cornflour, there may be a layer of oil that has collected on the top. Strain it off with a metal spoon before adding the cornflour and eggs.
