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’.
This slow cooked lamb Thermomix recipe utilises a deboned leg of lamb, but honestly you can use a shoulder of lamb or even lamb shanks. Make sure you follow the tips on how to make the most amazing gravy with it.
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
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.
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.

Cooking the Beef Stroganoff from The Healthy Mix II in the slow cooker, means you can use gravy beef or chuck beef to cook it low and slow. Make the sauce in the Thermomix and don’t add any water. Cook on low for 6-8 hours and stir through the sour cream & parsley at the end.
This healthy slow cooker Thermomix recipe is exclusive to The Healthy Mix II cookbook – available in the Skinnymixers Shop.
Chilli Con Carne
Like the other slow cooker converted Thermomix recipes, it is important to leave the water out to avoid a watery consistency.
To slow cook the Chilli Con Carne from A Little Taste of Mexico, simply make the sauce in the Thermomix without the water and transfer to the slow cooker with the meat. Cook on low for 6-8 hours and stir through the kidney beans at the end.
