At the farmers market the other night, there were cute little green peppers. One of my husband’s favorite meals is Stuffed Peppers. They are such a delicious and easy meal to make I thought I’d share them with you.
I make my stuffed peppers like little meatloaves cooked in pepper. The meat cooking in the pepper has such a wonderful flavor. We use Grass Fed Ground Beef which works wonderfully being on the lean side.
Trying to figure out how many peppers to make is the challenge here. I usually figure on 1/2 of a pepper for the kids and me but at least a whole pepper for Joe (did I mention that this is one of Joe’s favorites). I’ve found that a pound of ground beef (along with a bit of cooked rice) is enough for four average size peppers.
4 whole green (or red) peppers
1 pound grass-fed beef
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 onion, minced
1/2 green pepper, minced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon allspice
Turn your oven onto broil. Wash the peppers and cut them in half from stem to base. Put the peppers on a cookie sheet or in a broiler pan. Broil for 5-10 minutes keeping an eye on them so they do not burn.
