Thermomix Beef Stew with Vegetable and Buttermilk Dumplings recipe.

Ahh, beef stew!

Such an ideal family dinner, it really is the ultimate comfort food. Top this gorgeous stew with lovely, fluffy buttermilk dumplings and you have a winner on your hands.

You can prepare this recipe in the Thermomix for ease and then slow-cooked in the oven for a few hours. Add the buttermilk dumplings to the stew and steam cook them in the oven too. Or you can steam them in the Varoma easily.

It takes a few minutes to stir up together, requires a bit of patience to allow the oven to work its magic and transform any piece of beef into the most succulent and meltingly tender morsel you could have ever wished for.

Actually, because of the slow cooking process, you can make this Thermomix beef stew using the tougher, cheaper cuts of beef (braising steak or chin for example). The long and slow cooking process will transform them into melt-in-the-mouth deliciousness.

This Thermomix beef stew may need you to be a bit organised in terms of cooking dinner a few hours in advance. It will be well worth the wait, I promise!

As ever with the Thermomix, you get to cook everything in one pot. This does save an awful lot of time with the washing up!

A true winter warmer, Thermomix beef stew really has to be in our top 10 favourite Thermomix dishes.

A quick tip: like most stews and saucy dishes, it is even nicer the day after.

Serve with fresh crusty bread to mop up all that gorgeous sauce or mashed potatoes, and a green vegetable of your choice.

A few hours in the oven and this meat is now meltingly tender.
Instructions
  1. Add 2 onions, halved and 7 garlic cloves to the mixing bowl. Chop for 5 seconds / speed 5. Scrape down the sides.
  2. Add 3 tbsp olive oil and cook for 3 minutes / 100C / speed 1.
  3. Add 2tbsp balsamic vinegar and 2 tbsp tomato paste to the mixing bowl. Cook for a further 1 minute / 100C / Speed 1.
  4. Add 1kg beef chunks to the mixing bowl, sprinkle with 2tbsp plain flour. Stir for 5 minutes / 100C / Reverse speed 1.
  5. Add 50cl red wine, 30cl beef stock, 1 bay leaf, 1/2 tsp dried thyme 1/2 tsp sugar, 1tbsp paprika and cook for 7 minutes / 100C / Reverse speed low without measuring cup.
  6. Transfer into an oven proof dish and braise for 2 to 3 hours with the lid on.
  7. Remove the dish from the oven, add the carrots, leeks and potatoes, cover and place back in the oven for another hour.
  8. In the meantime, add 1/2 bunch chive to the mixing bowl. Chop for 5 seconds / speed 5.
  9. Add 1 egg, 230g self raising flour, 110g buttermilk and a pinch of salt to the mixing bowl. Mix for 20 seconds / speed 5.
  10. Make up 15 to 18 small balls out of the dough and drop them on top of the beef stew. Cover the pot and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. No peeking though - the dumplings will need the steam to cook, rise and be nice and fluffy. After about 15 minutes, check if they are cooked, pretty much as you would for a cake but using a toothpick or a small knife.
  11. Serve with crusty bread and green beans.
