This is my version of an old classic. My late hubs couldn't eat peppers and I hadn't made them in years. Now I am making these a lot they are a tried and true at our house.
Don't use too lean a hamburg here, you want the fat for flavor.

Ingredients

3 to 4 large
green bell peppers
1 1/2 lb
ground beef

scant 1/3 cup minus a tablespoon white rice
1/2 c
onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp
each salt and pepper, or to taste
14 1/2 oz
can tomato sauce, we like hunt's

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If your peppers are tippy, shave some off the bottom to get them to stand level. Cut off the top, I save the tops for other uses, usually put in a salad for the same meal.
2
Mix up everything except the tomato sauce.
3
Stuff the peppers with the hamburg mixture.
4
Put the stuffed peppers in your slow cooker, and pour the tomato sauce over them.
5
Cover and cookon low for 6 to 8 hours. My slow cooker always cooks fast, so for me it's 6 hrs.
