Croatian Stuffed Green Peppers (“Punjena paprika”)
This is in fact Turkish heritage in Croatian gastronomy. We use mixed pork and beef meat. This is the recipe I use and the difference is that I roast peppers before putting them into sauce.
"Delicious! The seasonings were a little light, but I made myself cook it as posted for the authentic taste, and did it ever deliver! Will definitely make again!"- Firebyrd
