How to cook Stuffed Peppers
Preparing the peppers
- 5 large green bell peppers
- 1 Tbs oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup cooked rice
- 15 oz. of your favorite tomato sauce
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Wash peppers; slice small amount off bottom to allow peppers to stand in pan. Slice tops off peppers; remove seeds and ribs.
Chop pieces of bell pepper that you removed from top and bottom. Heat oil in skillet; add chopped pepper, onion and garlic. Sauté a few minutes until soft.
Add ground beef; cook and stir until no longer pink. Drain off excess grease.
Return the beef to the skillet; stir in salt, rice and 1 cup sauce. Heat through.
Lightly spoon meat mixture into each pepper. Stand in a lightly sprayed dish so the peppers all fit snugly.
Cover and bake 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes longer.
Serve with additional sauce.
I prefer the peppers crisp-tender. If you like your peppers softer, fill a Dutch oven or large pot with water and bring to a boil. Carefully add the cleaned and cut peppers, using a spoon to submerge; cook 3-5 minutes. Remove from water bath and proceed with recipe.
