Stuffed Peppers

My mom made this when I was a kid and I loved it. I just ate the insides as a kid but I've grown up a little and now I eat the insides and the pepper. It is really yummy and simple. Give it a try!


6 large green peppers

1 lb. ground beef

1/2 c. chopped onion

1 16 oz. can tomatoes, cut up (or stewed)

1/2 c. long grain rice

1/2 c. water

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. Worcestershire

1 c. shredded cheese


Cut off tops of green peppers; empty seeds. Chop 1/4 c. of tops, set aside. Boil the peppers uncovered in water for 5 minutes. Drain well and sprinkle insides with salt. In skillet cook beef, onion, 1/4 c. peppers. When meat is brown and veggies tender, drain fat. Add undrained tomatoes, uncooked rice, water, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper. Boil, reduce heat, cover, simmer 15-18 minutes, till rice is tender. Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat mixture. Place 10x6x2 baking dish. Bake covered 350* for 30-35 minutes.

Tawnie--I got your comment on my Stuffed Peppers post on my recipe blog. I came to browse the Recipe Society blog and came across this recipe! It is exactly the same as the recipe I got from Ryan's grandma! Kinda funny! :) I'm not a big fan of green peppers, and I thought I wouldn't like stuffed peppers very much, but this is really good!
