If you don't have the Cookidoo app for your Thermomix follow the recipe below:

  • 80g celery trimmed and cut into 2 cm pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 carrot approx. 170g, cut into 2 cm pieces
  • 1 brown onion approx. 180g, cut into halves
  • 50g olive oil
  • 250g pork mince
  • 250g beef mince
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 2 tsp vegetable stock paste – I used a vegetable stock pot
  • 25 tsp ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 50 g red wine
  • 100 - 150g tomato paste I used 150g
  • 400g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 1 sprig fresh basil leaves only, for serving (optional)
  • 100g parmesan cheese grated, for serving (optional)


  • Place the celery, garlic, carrot and onion into the mixing bowl and chop 3 seconds/speed 7. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with the spatula.
  • Add the olive oil and cook 5 minutes/100°C/reverse/speed 2.
  • Add the pork mince, beef mince, bay leaf, stock paste, pepper and dried oregano. Stir with the spatula to break up and loosen the mince and cook 5 minutes /100°C/reverse/speed 1, placing the simmering basket instead of the measuring cup onto the mixing bowl lid.
  • Insert the butterfly whisk.Add the red wine, tomato paste and tinned tomatoes and cook 20 to 25 minutes/100°C/reverse/speed soft (spoon symbol). Remove the butterfly whisk.
  • Carefully remove and discard the bay leaf. Serve with torn basil leaves (optional) and parmesan cheese (optional).
  • Enjoy with pasta of your choice, crusty bread or garlic bread, and a glass of red wine!


  • I didn’t have celery in the fridge when I decided I wanted to make this recipe again, so just added extra carrot.
  • I also didn’t have pork mince but had 500g of steak mince and used it and both substitutions made a very good bolognese sauce!
