Cooking nests in a multicooker:

Step 1: prepare the minced pork and beef.

In order to prepare a dish, you must first prepare the stuffing. To do this, take the ingredient from the freezer or refrigerator and put it in a bowl. After that, set the meat component aside so that it acquires room temperature. Attention: In no case do not defrost minced meat in a microwave or under running hot water, otherwise it may ruin the taste of the dish.

Step 2: prepare the onion.

Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk. Then we wash the ingredient well under running water and put it on a cutting board. Using the same sharp inventory, grind the vegetable into small squares, length no more than 1 centimeter. Attention: so that the onion juice does not get into your eyes, try to rinse the knife as often as possible under a stream of cold water. Shredded component is transferred to a free plate.

Step 3: prepare the cheese.

Using a coarse grater, grind the hard cheese on a cutting board and then transfer it to a free plate. And so that the component does not wind off, since we will add it to the dish at the very end, we wrap the plate with cheese with cling film and meanwhile set aside. Attention: hard cheese can be taken of any grade and any brand to your taste. It can be Russian, Dutch or even Edam cheese.

Step 3: prepare the filling of the dish.

In a bowl with thawed minced meat, add chopped onions, break the egg, and also salt and pepper the future filling to taste. After that, using a tablespoon, mix all the ingredients well until a homogeneous mass is formed. Everything, meat filling is ready!

Step 4: prepare the nests in the multicooker.

So, put the pasta nests on the bottom of the multicooker. After that, we moisten slightly clean hands under water so that the minced meat does not stick to them, and begin to form the filling of the dish. Using a tablespoon, take a small amount of meat mixture and roll a ball from it in our hands. Then put the meat ball in the center of the nest. Attention: the filling must be divided into an equal amount corresponding to the number of nests, and only after put it in the pasta. Since the meat balls we get are quite large in size, you need not worry that during the preparation they will fall apart into pieces. Moreover, we pour purified water so that it covers only the nests. So, after that we cover the multicooker cover and turn on the "pilaf" mode. As soon as we hear a signal that the dish is ready, open the lid of the slow cooker and sprinkle each nest with grated hard cheese. Then close the lid again and continue to cook the dish for another 2 minutes. During this period of time, the cheese will melt and completely cover the nests with meat filling. Important: the more cheese you add to the dish, the tastier it will be.

Step 5: serve the nests in the multicooker.

Since the nests in the slow cooker are very satisfying, not to mention the taste, the dish can be served as the main one. And to make it even tastier, everyone can be invited to taste a piece of nests along with ketchup, mayonnaise or sauce for every taste. But you can decorate the dish with finely chopped parsley. Good appetite!
