Stuffed Peppers

28 Sep

I got a lot of peppers this week in my basket.  We aren’t big pepper fans in this house, but I wanted to do something else besides just chopping them and adding them to stir fry.  So, I decided to try stuffed peppers. I got a recipe from a friend of mine, then looked up a couple other recipes, and came up with this.

Stuffed Peppers

4-6 peppers, tops and seeds removed
1 cup cooked rice
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano (Or any flavored tomatoes.  If you use plain tomatoes, you will want to add some kind of seasoning)
1 egg
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 cups tomato sauce (I used Ragu Traditional sauce)
1 cup water

Mix the rice, ground beef, onion, tomatoes, egg, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl.  Fill the peppers with the stuffing, making it level with the top of the pepper.  Add filled peppers to a large saucepan.  In a separate bowl, combine tomato sauce and water.  Pour over the peppers in the saucepan.

Bring the liquid to a boil, then turn heat down to a simmer.  Cover, and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until meat is fully cooked and peppers have softened.

I cut open a pepper to make sure mine were done, and they were!

Note: This can be done in your slow cooker instead.  Place the peppers in your slow cooker and cook on low 6-8 hours.

    […] really enjoy Stuffed Peppers, but no one else in my house really likes them.  I think it’s the texture of the peppers […]
