Stuffed Peppers

It has been a LOOOONG time since I've updated. I've actually been busy working on launching a new site to show off my cakes & cookies. Check it out at www.centerstagesweets.com. However, eating all those sweets has helped me pack on some pounds, so it's definitely time to start making some healthy recipes again!

Stuffed peppers have always been one of my favorite meals, and using low fat ground beef and brown rice makes it a great healthy meal. I used a combination of about 5 recipes to come up with this one, and it was great! I loved the little kick of spice the tobacsco sauce adds to the topping. Enjoy!






Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:

  • 4 green or red bell peppers
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (undrained)
  • 1 ½ cups cooked brown rice
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash of tabasco sauce

Directions:

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Slice peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds & stems. Boil peppers 5 minutes to soften. Remove from water and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Sautee beef, onions and garlic in a large frying pan until beef is browned. Drain excess fat.
  • Season beef mixture with salt and pepper, then add diced tomatoes and cooked rice.
  • Place peppers open side up in a baking dish and stuff with meat and rice mixture.
  • Bake peppers for 25-30 minutes.
