Tasty Tuesday: Stuffed Peppers

Hey everyone!

Hope you all are having a wonderful day! Mine has been pretty good thus far, still getting used to John's new schedule. It's been weird cooking dinner in the day time! I tried a new recipe today and it was delicious!


1 pound ground beef (I used turkey and added spices to help with taste)
1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
1 cup water
6 green bell peppers
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce (I used the tomato sauce I got from Trader Joe's. It has less sugar than most brands and it's tasty!)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Place the rice and water in a saucepan (I used my wonderful rice cooker), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and cook 20 minutes. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the beef until evenly browned.

Remove and discard the tops, seeds, and membranes of the bell peppers. Arrange peppers in a baking dish with the hollowed sides facing upward. (Slice the bottoms of the peppers if necessary so that they will stand upright.)

In a bowl, mix the browned beef, cooked rice, 1 can tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each hollowed pepper.

Mix the remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning in a bowl, and pour over the stuffed peppers.

Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, basting with sauce every 15 minutes, until the peppers are tender.

  1. This looks yummy. It is a very classic Turkish dish too actually. I wish my husband ate bell peppers I would make it more often. Sucks that my hubby is super picky and yet my kids are not!


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
