Chunky beef ragu – Thermomix adaptation of a Hello Fresh recipe

The one thing I hadn’t been able to master yet with the Thermomix, is bolognese sauce. No matter what setting I used, reverse speed, low speed etc, it always turned into complete mush, much to the disgust of the kids.

When Hello Fresh delivered the ingredients and recipe to make a beef ragu with spaghettis (a rather fancy name for spag bol), I remembered all the wonderful comments about fellow Thermomix blogger, Skinnymixer’s chunky bolognese recipe.

Here’s how I mixed both HelloFresh & Skinnymixer’s recipes. The result was perfectly chunky and rather delicious too, even if I say so myself!
