How to Make Stuffed Green Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix ground beef, onion, rice, salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder. Stuff the peppers with the meat mixture.
  2. In a large pot, pour the entire can of tomato juice. Rinse can out with the water. Place peppers into the pot. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 to 2 hours, until peppers are tender.
  3. In a large skillet, melt the shortening (butter). Sprinkle in the flour and whisk until smooth. Cook roux until it deepens to a medium brown. Stir frequently so it doesn't
