A wonderful day together,
today there’s another multi cooker experiment including the recipe to try at home.
As I have only little time, I choose a quick made meal: a tortellini casserole with a simple ground beef and cream sauce suits very good. Also I’m interested in whether and how the multi cooker simplifies my cooking at this type of meal.
So I get startet. During the shopping I choose tortellini from the dairy case whose cooking time is only 2 minutes. Later on I can put them directly into the sauce.
Now to the actual cooking. The shallots are chopped as small as possible so the refine the taste discreetly and unobstrusively. This is it for the groundwork and now I start running the loewe PowerCook. First I use the programme “Fry”. The first positive surprise: The device informs me with a bleep when it is hot enough. With some oil I sauté the shallots and then add the ground beef. The latter must be cooked in this step. This proceeds fastest with the lid closed.
Then it’s the tomato paste’s turn. Once it is mixed with the meat mass, the cream can be stirred in. Now is a good moment in order to add some delicious seasoning: I’m not saving salt, pepper, paprika and different herbs. Here is space for experimenting and adding a personal touch.
At last I add the sieved tomatoes and stir thouroghly. Now for a second time I taste the sauce. If necessary – some more seasoning can be added at this stage. I prefer a little more seasoning knowing that the tortellini will weaken the flavor later on.
Green light for the torellini. Now they may dip into the sauce. For the whole mass becomes a casserole, I stir well and sprinkle grated chease onto my current result.
I’m not sure which programme to use now, so I choose the universal programme “Multi Cooker” and adjust 20 minutes and a temperature of 110 degree Celsius.
Hungry I’m waiting for the result. After the time I stand ready with my plate and put a large, cheese threads withdrawing portion on it. After the first bite, I am more than satisfied and my hungry mouths praise the delicious food.
Only few simple steps need to be done for the cooking, the result is convincing. For another time I am happy that you can conjure amazing dishes with little effort.
With a single device I could conduct my plan. This simplifies the cleaning, especially because the bowl is very easy to clean due to the coating. The second advantage is that neither during the frying nor during the cooking the smell has spread within the room. In this regard, the device keeps its promises.
With a satisfied smile I come to the conclusion that the multi cooker is really helpful for this meal.
