Thermomix Beef Barley Risotto

4 large portions
I forgot to add in the parmesan cheese but didn't realize it was missing until I finished eating my bowl. If you just use the Thermomix to make risotto the machine will pay for itself in a year. So easy and not a lot of work.  I used Barley pearls instead of arborio rice for something different and cooked it a bit longer.  The texture was nice and crunchy but not too crunchy. In the days where meat is becoming more and more expensive this recipe uses 200 g of ground beef. The flavour was great.
100g parmesan
200g ground beef
1 T olive oil
1 carrot (in 3 pieces)
2 celery sticks (in pieces)
1 shallot
250g Barley
650 g water
1-2 T homemade stock (I used chicken) or 1 veggie/beef cube
300g tomato passata sauce
1 Bay leaf
1 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper to taste
Grate parmesan 10 sec/speed 10 and set aside (or not, your choice)
Add oil and ground beef 5 minutes/Varoma/REVERSE/gentle stir (spoon)
Add carrots, celery.shallot and grind 5 sec/speed 5 until chopped
Add water, tomato,stock,bayleaf, salt,pepper and cook REVERSE/100C/gentle stir/30 minutes
Remove bayleaf and serve. Add parmesan. YUM!
