Day 3 with the Tefal Cuisine Companion
Each day I had decided to make something different and to test out the CC as much as I could, so I decided to make a winter favourite of mine – Beef Stroganoff. Beef Stroganoff again begins with onions but no garlic this time, and I was becoming a dab hand with this, no needing the recipe book for this part any more. I chopped up some beef steak and mushrooms by hand and added the rest of the ingredients, set the CC on the correct Slow Cook Program and walked away…. at the end of the program I added some cream. The Stroganoff tasted great, and it really was so easy to make.
My kids wanted me to make some chocolate custard (she had had some made in a Thermomix a few weeks ago). I could not find a recipe for chocolate custard in the CC so used a Thermomix recipe, and adjusted the speed as per instructions on the Facebook group, i.e. increase the speed by 2 and use the correct blade, which in this case was the stirring blade. I had to cook the custard for slightly longer than the recipe suggested, but the resulting custard was lovely and enjoyed by all the family.
