"Green peppers stuffed with ground beef and rice and topped with a seasoned tomato sauce."

"We added sliced jalapenos to the rice and hamburger mixture and i also boiled my green peppers before stuffing them and baking. Topped with cheese in the last few minutes of cooking. They were delicious. I used 2 small cans of sauce but next time i will probably buy 3.. Definately will make again. "


1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
1 cup water
6 green bell peppers
2 cans tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder; to taste
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Original recipe makes 6



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

Place the rice and water in a saucepan, 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.

Very easy and tasty...I added a little more seasoning to give a stronger flavor.

These were really good. I used quinoa instead of regular rice and will do so again.

Not a whole lot of work, makes it nice. Grandson loved it because there wasn't a whole lot of spices. Will definitely cook again.
