People have talked about it, recommended it, and I’ve surfed right on past it, thinking – no way – a roast in the Thermomix? With my new addiction (being.. cooking!) – of course I had to try it!
I did make a few changes. Browned the roast off first in a pan.
I didn’t do the potatoes in the Thermomix either – as I wanted them crispy. In hindsight, I could have still parboiled them (steamed) in the TMX – instead I parboiled in a saucepan, then shook the spuds up with the lid on, till they fluffed around the edges, added a little oil, shook it up some more, and placed them in the oven to crisp up. That’s a tip I learned from Jamie Oliver – and have never done my baked potatoes any other way since! I added carrots and the beans, and could have added more but was in lazy mode – keep it simple!
The result was amazing! The meat was succulant and ever so tasty. My 2nd born doesn’t like lamb much, but he literally inhaled this!
With the gravy, I strained it so it was smooth.
This is something you should definitely have a go at – especially if you are a skeptic like me! You’ll be very pleasantly surprised!
Thank you Thermomistress – for the simple instructions, and the delicious meal!
