Homemade Stuffed Peppers
STUFFED BELL PEPPER RECIPE
6 green bell peppers, steamed for 15 minutes
1 lb ground beef (or chicken)
1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
1 TBS homemade worcestershire sauce
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
1 cup stewed tomatoes (diced will work too)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp homemade Italian seasoning
1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the raw ground beef with the uncooked rice, garlic and onion powder, worcestershire sauce, 1 cup diced or stewed tomatoes, Italian seasoning and salt/pepper to taste. Stuff steamed peppers with this mixture. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with vegetable oil. Place stuffed peppers in the baking dish with hollow side (stuffed side) facing up.
Saute the onion and mix with the remaining tomato sauce ingredients. Pour sauce over stuffed peppers. Bake for 60 minutes. Top with the shredded cheese and bake another 15 minutes.
These can also be cooked in a crock-pot for 3 hours. During the last 30 minutes, top with cheese.
You may also microwave the green peppers covered in a microwave dish for 3 minutes or until bright green in color and steaming.
Instead of the rice filling, just bake meatloaf in the peppers so you have individual servings – you could even top them with mashed potatoes and cheese. Be creative.
