Reviews forOne-Pot Stuffed Pepper Dinner
"Made this last nite. Only thing I did different was I had left over cooked rice from another meal. Will deffinetly make again!"
"Very tasty recipe. I also thought the green peppers needed additional cooking as I like them more tender. The consistency seemed a little soupy, so I added an additional 1/2 cup of rice and it was perfect. Much easier than stuffing peppers and same great taste!"
"This is a wonderful recipe, so quick and yummy. Note that if you follow the directions as they are given, the peppers will probably be a little crisp. I like mine a little softer, so I add them to the pan when I add the ground beef and cook them together."
