      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. chop garlic cloves and lemon zest together for 8 seconds speed 10

  2. add herbs and chop for 4 seconds speed 7

  3. add sliced pork and mix together with herbs and garlic on Counter-clockwise operation 30 seconds speed 2.  While pork and herbs are being mixed together sprinkle in a few pinches of salt (optional)

  4. Remove marinaded meat from TM bowl and place in varola dish & tray, ensuring there are spaces between the pieces of meat to allow steam to flow through.

  5. Add 1,200 grams of water to TM bowl, place varoma into positionon top of TM bowl lid and steam marinaded meat for 8mins, Varoma temperature, speed 3.

  6. Steamy Stir-Fry
  7. Chop all vegetables as discribed while meat is steaming. 

  8. add a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of oil to the water in the TM bowl and pour in 500 grams of Pasta (or insert simmering basket with 400g rice).  Replace Varoma with meat on top and steam for 7 mins on Varoma temp speed 2 in Counter-clockwise operation direction.

  9. Next, tip all the meat in the Varoma tray into the deep Varoma dish and toss through all Vegetables.  The Varoma dish will be really full, the meat should be almost cooked through. 

  10. Set to cook for 7mins, Varoma temp, speed 2 (still on Counter-clockwise operation as pasta is still in the TM bowl).

  11. Stir-Fry (this step is optional)
  12. add the 3 oils to a wok or electric frying pan and heat until HOT.  Add all ingredients form the Varmoa dish (meat & veg) to the wok and stir fry for a minute while drizzling the Soy Sauce over.

  13. Drain and rince pasta and add to wok or electric frying pay and stir through until pasta is 'glossy' from oil and meat juices.

    If you are not going to 'stir-fry' at the end.... just toss all together in a large serving bowl with warm oils and soy sauce (from the frying step). tmrc_emoticons.)
