Recipe's preparation

    Method
  1. Place garlic, onion & leek into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add oil and saute for 5 minutes, varoma temp, speed 1.

    Add carrots, celery & potato and chop for 5 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add stock paste, peas & pepper to the bowl. Add water slowly to Max fill line (doesn't matter if a bit less than 1,000g).

    Place ham hock in varoma basket and place on top of Thermie. 

    Cook for 60 minutes, varoma temp, speed 1.

    Check soup and add more water if looking too thick - depends on personal preference.

    Turn hock over, in varoma basket, and cook soup for another 15 mins at Varoma temp on speed 1.

    Once soup cooked, remove Varoma basket and put MC back in lid. Slowly turn dial up to speed 9 and blend for about 40 seconds.

    Remove meat from hock bone and chop into smallish pieces. Add chopped meat into soup and mix on reverse, speed 5 for about 20 seconds.

    Serve with home made bread rolls for an extra special meal!

Tip

My original recipe cooks the hock in the simmering basket but I find it very fiddly.

I've fnally changed it up a bit so that you can cook the hock in the varoma basket and still have as much flavour!

  • I'll be honest, I'm really not a good cook. ...

    Submitted by fraserabrown on 12. August 2018 - 20:24.

    I'll be honest, I'm really not a good cook.
    but i've made this recipe now about 10 times for about 4 different people, and every single time i've gotten some serious praise.

    extremely simple, and this variation makes it 10x easier than trying to fit it all in the thermo basket (which always ends up with me burning myself)

    i follow the recipe pretty closely, although maybe i add a bit more vegetables.

    the one complaint that i get is that people don't really enjoy the rind part of the ham hock. i have tried to remove it both before and after cooking, with little success. i actually don't mind it at all, i think it's nice as long as it's chopped up.

    does anyone have any tips for this? should i even bother to remove it?

    What a great recipe and super easy.
    Only change I made was to leave stock out altogether as the ham makes it plenty salty enough, thats just our taste though!

    Yummy!! I added an extra 2 potatoes and didn't have a leek so used 2 x onions. Hock was cooked well and it was delish. Was quite thick because of the extra potatoes but I didn't mind that. Thanks for sharing

    Submitted by Augusta on 17. August 2017 - 19:11.

    I have the TM5 thermomix and it does not allow the Veroma function with liquid that reaches the 2ltr mark. Would it still work with the hock being steamed at 100 in the veroma tray or would it take longer.

    Loved this recipe. Initially a little sceptical putting the ham hock in the veroma, but it was perfect and we enjoyed it as much as the old fashioned way.

    Loved loved loved this soup.... used 1 hock and some smoked soup bones and it was just delicious... have already got the ingredients for my next batch. I didn't blend it as much at the end because I like my soup chunky and it was a 10 out of 10... a big thank you for the recipe, oh and I loved that the hocks went in the varoma.

    Submitted by soni.jay on 16. September 2016 - 12:11.

    I'm just a new user but I've found steaming the hock in the Varoma does not allow it to fall off the bone like my slow cooker does despite adding an extra 30minutes to the cooking... any suggestions ?? I will try putting it into the basket next time but not looking forward to trying to cut the bone to fit !!
