    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. Cut the belly into squares about 2 x 3cm in size.  Plunge them into boiling salted water for 30 seconds to seal the edges of the meat. 


    Strain the belly pieces out of the boiling water and place into your slow cooker.  

    Rub the pork belly all over with the mixed spice and salt rub.


    Put all the ingredients for the sauce in the thermomix and blend for 20 seconds on speed 9, scrape down sides and blend for another 5 seconds.


    Pour the sauce all over the pork


    Add the star anise and turn the slow cooker onto high. 


    Cook for at least 3 hours or until the meat is melting and tender. 



    Scoop out the pork pieces and place into a thermoserver or other serving dish.  Cover in sauce from the slow cooker, making sure you get the sauce from the bottom, not the pork fat that is covering the top of the sauce.
