My german friends who were also my first Thermomix customers told me that they watched a tube on making pork roast in the Thermomix. I originally thought how can that be? CRAZY!!!! They told me they watched the tube and it looked really great. I also watched the tube (in german) and thought at some point I would like to give it a try. The roast is steamed using beer for 2 hours and then browned under the broiler in the oven for 30 minutes. Pretty easy as well as the meat doesn’t shrink. When I cook roasts traditionally at my job (in an oven), I usually loose 5-10 portions due to shrinkage. This doesn’t happen when using the Thermomix. You really keep most of the meat that you already paid for! Another money saving feature of the Thermomix.

Yummy! I’m converted.
