Enjoy your dinner with peppers that are stuffed with ground beef and baked to perfection.
Dec 19, 2017

Ingredients

  • 4 large peppers (any colour)
  • 1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (398 mL) tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Steps

  • 1
    Cut thin slice from stem end of each pepper to remove top of pepper. Remove seeds and membranes; rinse peppers. If necessary, cut thin slice from bottom of each pepper so they stand up straight. In 4-quart Dutch oven, add enough water to cover peppers. Heat to boiling; add peppers. Cook about 2 minutes; drain.
  • 2
    In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in rice, salt, garlic and 1 cup of the tomato sauce; cook until hot.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 4
    Stuff peppers with beef mixture. Stand peppers upright in ungreased 8-inch square glass baking dish. Pour remaining tomato sauce over peppers.
  • 5
    Cover tightly with foil. Bake 10 minutes. Uncover and bake about 15 minutes longer or until peppers are tender. Sprinkle with cheese.
