I have never found a recipe for stuffed peppers that I liked. I decided that I would have to make my own. The easy peasy part comes from using pre-packaged flavored rice mix and the sauce only utilizes three ingredients! I'm all for tasty, easy and flavor!! Nothing better than to be able to throw things together quickly for a delicious meal. Family tested and very much approved. I don't generally measure out amounts when I cook, so some of the ingredients are approximations, feel free to adgust to your taste.
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take tops off green peppers; remove membrains and seeds; microwave 40 seconds to 45 seconds (do not overcook-they will cook more in the oven). Remove from microwave; set aside.
2Cook rice according to instructions on box. Prepare your beef while the rice cooks, prepare the sauce as well
3Brown beef in skillet until no longer pink; remove from pan, set aside. Place onion in same pan, saute until almost tender; add garlic and saute another 1-2 minutes. Return beef to skillet; stir until thoroughly combined.
4TO ASSEMBLE: For 4 peppers, Spray an 8x8 or 7x12 baking dish with cooking spray and pour small amount of sauce in bottom of dish. Fill peppers with beef mixture making sure you fill fully and to the top. Place peppers into the dish. Pour remaining sauce over the green peppers and into the baking dish.
5Bake at 350 degrees for aproximately 30-35 minutes.
