Pork Adobo in Thermomix

Pork Adobo is a very yummy dish! My coworker who is Filipino makes it and I have tried to recreate it in the Thermomix.  My family thought it was really delicious and worth remaking. I believe it is made with chicken mostly. I also made a garlic and fried onion brown rice to go with it. Also yummy!

1 onion cut into larger chunks
700 g pork cut into 1 inch cubes
6 garlic cloves
3 bay leafs
1 MC full of apple cider vinegar (MC measure cup)
2 MC full of water
3 T soy sauce
3T oyster sauce
1 tsp black peppercorns (maybe grind because nobody likes biting into one)
1/2 MC brown sugar

Thermomix Quick Tips - Orange and passionfruit curd


I just made this using my own ingredients so I had yo do a bit of guesswork but it turned out really nice. I didn't sieve the seeds out as then there would be almost no juice to use. In Canada the passion fruits are very expensive and hard to find. I used fresh ones but I know you can get the juice in cans too.
4 passion fruits pulp scraped out
185 g orange juice
120g sugar
200g butter
4 eggs

Place butterfly and all ingredients into bowl.
When temperature is up to 80C time for 8 minutes/speed 3.
I served in over chopped fruit and it gave a nice tang.

Thermomix Uni Pasta

The great thing about Chinese New Year is that a lot of the local stores carry products that you don't usually see. My husband happened to find some Uni at a local store. The only thing is that it was packaged like it was made out of gold.  The great thing about my Thermomix is that I can check weights and see how accurate weights are. I was charged for 130g but only received 95g of Uni. The packaging weighed 35g. Hows that for taking advantage of the consumer.

95g Uni
80g good olive oil
package of linguine or pasta of your choice.
Place uni and oil in bowl10 sec/speed6
Pour over hot pasta and serve sprinkled with salt.
