So I use to spend the time coring out peppers mixing the meat and stuffing them into green peppers. Yeah it looks great when served, but as I watched my husband cut them all up before even taking a bite, then looked at his dish and saw a big mass of meat, onions, tomatoes and green peppers, I thought why am I going through all this! Why not cut my prep time in half and do it all for him all in one pan! The end result is the same and tastes just as good!
This is my version of a stuffed green pepper. So easy and takes half the time!
In a pan saute 1 small diced onion in olive oil. Add 1 pound of ground beef and brown. Next add the following ingredients:
- 1 cut up green pepper
- 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
- 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
- 2 8 oz cans water
- 3/4 cup uncooked white rice
- allspice and garlic powder to taste
- crushed red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper
Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 40 minutes or until rice is cooked and peppers are tender.
