The results are in! Skinnymixers have voted these 8 meals as their favourite Healthy Slow Cooker Thermomix recipes. 

There is something for everyone that is sure to be a hit in your family including pulled pork, butter chicken, beef goulash & slow cooked Greek lamb.

Although the Thermomix TM5 & TM31 aren’t really designed to slow cook in, they are a match made in heaven with a slow cooker to create healthy slow cooker Thermomix recipes. The new TM6 Thermomix from Vorwerk does however have a new slow cook function & is due for release in Australia June 2019. You don’t need the new TM6 to enjoy these family favourite slow cooking recipes.

Why use the Thermomix & Slow Cooker

The benefit of using the Thermomix to prepare the recipe means that you can cook from scratch and easily adjust the recipe to cater for any food allergies or dietary needs ie. to cater for coeliac disease, keto, dairy free etc.

Typically after preparing the recipe, you then transfer it into your slow cooker or even a low temperature oven to cook it low and slow. You can then go about your day and have a tender, delicious and nutritious dinner ready for you in the slow cooker.

As there are so many recipes that you can slow cook with the Thermomix, we recently ran a poll in the Skinnymixers Facebook Group to find out ‘Top 8 Skinnymixers Slow Cooker Recipes’.

So as chosen by the Skinnymixers Facebook Group… here are the Top 8 Healthy Slow Cooker Thermomix Recipes.

Hungarian Goulash

The Hungarian Goulash is the new kid on the block, but with winter right around the corner this is one recipe everyone will be cooking!

Although the Hungarian Goulash recipe is cooked in the Thermomix, there are Slow Cooker & Pressure Cooker instructions on the recipe (thank me later!). Some people like to completely remove the water from this recipe when cooking in the slow cooker.

Alternatively, for more sauce you can reduce the liquid to 200 g. In the slow cooker or pressure cooker you can increase the meat, double the recipe or even use other cuts of meat like lamb shanks.

Butter Chicken in the Slow Cooker

For those Butter Chicken obsessed Skinnies, the slow cooker means you can double the chicken…

We all know the Butter Chicken makes a lot of sauce, so when you make it in the slow cooker you can double the chicken (up to 2.5kg) with double the marinade and make only one portion of sauce.

Marinate the chicken first (you can actually do this the night before), make the sauce in the Thermomix & add that to the slow cooker. Cook thighs on low for 6-8 hours and chicken breast on low for 3-4 hours. Add the nuts, and cream into the slow cooker with 30 minutes remaining.

Beef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon cooked in the slow cooker served with rustic mash

The best way to convert the Thermomix cooked recipes to be slow cooked is to reduce the liquid in the sauce.

When you make the Beef Bourguignon in the slow cooker, sauté the garlic, onions and speck in the Thermomix and measure the sauce ingredients into the mixer bowl before tipping it into the slow cooker. We recommend not adding the water & only using the wine with the stock paste concentrate as your liquid component.
