It’s another year and another German recipe creation that I’ve been meaning to tackle for month now. My kids love when we go home to visit and a relative or friends dishes up Hot Dog Goulash, in Germany they actually call it “Wuerstchen Goulash”. It’s simple, it can feed a crowd and kids and adults alike love the flavor combination. You can serve it over rice, pasta, mashed potatoes and if you are short on time just serve a roll and salad, call it diner. I’ve teamed up with Cedarlane Culinary to bring you the Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master.
It’s really a simple dinner but I don’t know why I never took the time to actually make it for the family at home. Maybe all the chopping? Who knows what I do know is that since this nifty, super cool kitchen gadget moved into my home over the holidays I have not stopped cooking or baking or creating. Wish I had the energy to post all the amazing things I’ve created but I was too busy in testing the Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master the ultimate kitchen companion combines eight kitchen gadgets into one super-appliance capable of chopping, blending, whipping, mixing, sautéing, stirring and steaming.
I’m in awwwww. Many of my friends have raved about a similar kitchen machine that they have had in Germany and other parts of the world for decades and I always envied them and dreamed that one day I would wake up and have my very own, till I woke up and realized said kitchen machine was $2,000.00. Yeah… that dream was never ever going to be reality, it’s the size of a blender!
I do have to admit it does awesome things, but ghoulish for that price it better comes with it’s own cook, cleaner and whatever else I may need. So back to the dream world I went till a few month ago when I found a machine that promised to do everything the very expensive machine could do, the chopping, blending, whipping, mixing, sautéing, stirring and steaming, for a fraction of the price, $599.99 and you can even catch it as low as $399.00 on sale. What a deal! Right?
I picked my dream of owning one of these amazing kitchen machines back up when the UPS guy arrived a few weeks ago and boy did my eyes light up. The Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master has completely changed the way we cook and what people in Europe rave about is all true. I can not believe that no company has ever tried to bring this amazing tools to the US for the American kitchens to utilize and make dinner more delicious, healthy and homemade in no time. I’m very excited that Cedarlane has taken on this adventurous journey and teamed up with me to share my amazing experience with all of you and my family.
I used the chopping, sauté, mixing, stirring and cooking function in the Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master, lovingly named “Mixie” as a short name by me. I know I’m strange, I name all my fun appliances that I love. A few years ago I got a robot floor cleaner and still to this day we call him “Robby” and everyone knows who I’m talking about, so Mixie will be our next best friend and she will be in the kitchen as a stable on the counter.
Ok, back to the recipe, it was simple. One pot, one machine and if you follow the few simple steps in my recipe below, you will have dinner in no time. All homemade, no standing on the stove, you could use the time to do homework with the kids, watch a quick movie, read a book or just talk about your day and make it family time all while your trusted “Mixie” a/k/a Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master gets dinner done for you. Look at it as a chef in your kitchen that will take all the hard work off your hands. How amazing is that for a start into a new year?
The chopping function itself is worth gold, add the carrots hole, if you have baby carrots, cut the full size in half, add ½ onions mushrooms or any other veggie and within 10 seconds all are chopped at once nicely in a bowl that can be used for sauté and cooking at the same time. No more smelly hands, crying eyes or hours prepping for a meal. I’m in LOVE!
See how easy it is to make this delicious German Hot Dog Goulash? I had no idea that it’s that easy and it is now a staple in our home thanks to my “Mixie” and her amazing cooking skills. I’ve also made pudding in under 8 minutes from adding the milk and the chocolate, starch to the table, that’s it. All I did was push a few buttons and patiently waited. I know eventually I will find lots of things to do with my extra time. Who doesn’t love extra time right?
You can steam and create an entire meal all at the same time as well, I haven’t had a chance to do that but it’s on my list of things for the new year to do. Check out the YouTube channel with lots of amazing how-to and recipe ideas. Trust me, the possibilities are endless and you will soon realize that you can not live without this amazing machine and need a “Mixie” of your own.
The Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master comes with everything you need, no extra attachments need to be purchased. Soon as you open the box and read the manual, I highly recommend checking out the manual first and getting familiar with the machine via YouTube or various online forums and you will be rocking the new wave of cooking in no time.
So, what ya thinking of my homemade German Hot Dog Goulash? It was amazing, my family loved it and we had plenty for leftovers, but the Bellini cooking fun doesn’t have to stop there, you can make breakfast, lunch, dessert, cookies, breads, even gift ideas like bath salt and other items that you can think of. It’s an all around amazing tool to have in your kitchen. Trust me when I say, keep it on the counter because you will use it multiple times during the day, cleanup is a breeze and easy to do, too.
Oh, one thing. The Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master runs on the Metric system with temps as high as 100C (212F) and even if you aren’t familiar with the Metric system, all the recipes I’ve found everywhere online or in books refer back to the metric system, so no worries if you have your machine, it will all work out. The machine also comes with a scale that can be converted from gram, liters to ounces and pounds in no time. It will quickly be a habit and you will not even worry about it. So make that be your least worry and don’t shy away from it just because of that. Really it’s not a big deal!
You can grab your very own Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master here in the US (finally!!) at one of these fine stores Bed Bath & Beyond, Wayfair and Kohl’s. There you have it, If you can’t afford to hire a caterer or chef for your family, no worries, the Bellini can whip up all the dips, soups, sides, dough and even desserts that you’ll need.
