Bell pepper recipe

Try this delicious bell pepper recipe! It is a Turkish recipe I got from my mom. There are many different recipes similar to this, but this one is my favorite! This is not a quick meal, so I do not recommended making it on a busy weeknight. The level of difficulty is more moderate, but a great way to start exploring more challenging recipes. There are a variety of bell peppers out there, including sizes and colors. For this recipe, you will need small, green bell peppers. The green variety seem to work best as the red and yellow, and orange bell peppers tend to taste more sweet when cooked. This meal is usually served as a main course and is perfect during fall and winter months.

You will need the following for this dish:

  • 6 Green Bell Peppers
  • 2 T. Tomato Paste
  • 2 Small Tomatoes, Chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1/2 C. Uncooked Rice
  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 3 T. Water (for the filling)
  • Water

TIP: Be careful to not over stuff the bell peppers with the filling as it can cause the peppers to burst while cooking!

To prepare this dish, start by washing the green bell peppers. Slice the top of the bell pepper and remove the seeds from the middle. In a bowl, combine the ground beef, uncooked rice, tomatoes, tomato paste, salt and pepper, 3 T. water. Stuff the green bell peppers. Be careful to not over stuff as it can cause the peppers to burst while cooking. If you have any leftover filling, go ahead and freeze it for next time. Put the top of the green bell pepper back on, it will look like a little hat.

Place stuffed green bell peppers upright in the pot. Add enough water to fill less than half way. Cook for about 35-40 minutes on medium heat or until soft.
