This fashionable look bowl made of thermal glass. Have you heard about this? This is new material. You can heat it – you can bake it in the oven or cook something in the microwave. In this case, the thermal glass does not break, even if it is hot to put on a cold surface or put under a stream of water.
There is one more feature. See, the bowl has double walls? Dishes from this glass are almost always made double-walled. Why? Not just for beauty. Due to this design, heat is intelligently distributed inside the dishes. Between the walls is an air cushion that holds it. Looking ahead, let’s say – baking in such a bowl was cool. The effect is about the same as that of a clay pot (which, of course, is not what you expect from such utensils).
Double walls with an air gap also prevent the dishes from cooling down quickly – they keep the temperature.
We tested the bowl with the simplest meat casserole recipe. It is done quickly and therefore is suitable for those cases when suddenly hungry guests arrived.
We do not use potatoes in a casserole, because it takes time to bake it. Here it is replaced by noodles. In our case, it is jaime – noodles for beshbarmak. Lasagna sheets can also be used with equal success.
So, for the casserole, we used:
- minced meat
- some ketchup
- bell pepper
- salt to taste
- mayonnaise (but it is better to replace it with grated cheese!)
- olive oil – for frying vegetables
To speed up the baking process, we first boil the minced meat. Throw it in a saucepan with salted water (it should be enough to cover the meat, but not much more). Let it boil and boil for a minute or two. We take out the minced meat, and save the broth.
While the minced meat is in the saucepan, you can have time to lightly fry the vegetables. Zucchini cut into thin circles and pepper into cubes. Fry a little – no more than two minutes.
Now the preliminary stage is completed and you can collect the casserole.
At the bottom of the bowl lay out in one layer sheets of noodles. On top of the minced meat, cover it with a layer of noodles. Next, a layer of pepper cubes, followed by a layer of zucchini. Now in the bowl you need to add a little decoction, which remained from the stuffing. You need to pour it so that the top layer of noodles is covered, nothing more.
Now, it would be nice to cover the casserole with a layer of grated cheese, which would melt and form an appetizing crisp. Unfortunately, we did not have cheese on hand, so I had to use mayonnaise. We greased them with the top and put the bowl in the oven.
The oven is heated to 170 degrees. The casserole here needs to stand for 6-8 minutes. Through the transparent walls of the bowl you can clearly see if all the ingredients have baked.
It turns out seductive, juicy and mouth-watering food. The whole process took only 15 minutes.
