I have never been much of a fan of mince in the Thermomix. I do of course ALWAYS make my own mince, just don't cook it in the machine. Well I need to put an end to that!! Tonight I was doing just a small batch of bolognaise so really wanted to do it in the Thermomix as opposed to getting out the big frypan. Also decided to change up our usual recipe to add some chorizo. The end result ...... DELICIOUSNESS. I was so happy with the way my mince cooked too but I think that is largely due to having control over how I mince my meat in the first place. It's not over minced and grainy like the store bought. Everyone loved it with my youngest going in for seconds so happy days. Enjoy. Eb. PS I opted to serve mine with zoodles which is super delicious but normal pasta is equally yum.
