"I made this recipe incorporating some changes recommended by other reviewers: We are just two unless our grown children come, so we halved the recipe except for the rice and green peppers. Added onion & garlic and sauteed them with the green pepper & ground meat. Used beef broth instead of water. Added the rice right at the end. Despite the changes I am giving this 5* as the end result is so delicious and it is so easy to make. We loved it and the leftovers as well.

Next time, I will try it without brown sugar and adding some smoked paprika for a little spicier taste."

"I took this to an annual soup and salad lunch my ladies group has every January and it was a hit. I only made slight changes as the recipe is written here. I added a small chopped onion as I was browning the meat, reduced the brown sugar to 2 tablespoons and added one quart of beef broth instead of 2 quarts water and the beef bouillon. Everything else was the same as the recipe written here. I say that because the recipe published in the magazine in 1996 did not call for any water at all. Why does the website recipe say to add 2quarts of water? Did the restaurant notify the magazine after it came out that they had forgotten to include it in their recipe when they sent it in? Or did the TOH test kitchen add it? If so, why? I'm not complaining, just wondering. Anyway, I will be definitely make this again!"

Also instead of all that rice I used half rice and half quinoa. Instead of beef bouillon granules I used roasted beef base. Absolutely delicious!"

"Delicious! Like others said, I added diced onion to the ground beef. Since we like thicker soup, I started out with two cups of water with the option of adding more, but it ended up being more than enough--I let it cook down once I removed the lid. I used white minute rice and added it in once the soup was done, rather than letting it cook the entire time. Also, I only added one tablespoon of brown sugar Splenda blend and skipped salt since the beef bouillon made it plenty salty."

10/2014: My sons now call this "my favorite soup"! I use half the water (I usually use stock if I have it on hand to replace the water), 1/2 the sugar (I usually use sucanat), double the green peppers (or any color peppers I have on hand), and canned or homemade tomato puree (if I have fresh tomatoes, I just chop those up to replaced the canned tomatoes or put them in my food processor to puree them in place of the tomato sauce). I have used cooked barley instead of rice and all varieties of rice--red, black, jubilee rice, brown rice--instead of white rice. Each pot is always met with rave reviews! You can definitely boost the nutrition of this with a few simple changes! Thank you so much, Krista Muddiman, for a soup that I'm sure one day my sons' wives will request the recipe!"

I started off by cooking the green peppers with 1lb of ground beef (not 2), which I seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, and a little seasoning and kosher salt. I also used beef stock instead of water and cut it back to about 46.5oz (1 32oz box container and one 14.5oz can) instead of 2 quarts. My family and I like a thicker consistency with our soups so I added a little at a time, making sure it was just right. I also used 3c of (cooked) instant brown rice (that's what I had in the pantry) since another review recommended it!

I also reduced the salt to 1 teaspoon and added 1 tablespoon of dried basil and 1 teaspoon each of dried rosemary and thyme. We topped it with shredded extra sharp cheddar and had crusty French bread on the side. It was extremely filling and fairly healthy.

"I love this recipe, but my problem isn't the recipe itself but the comment made by the "submitter" that leads pple to believe they created this recipe. The recipe has been around for a lot longer AND there's a starlite tavern in PA that has one of the first versions of this. Not this place. Good either way though and I recommend it."

"I made this recipe with some slight variations. Diced half an onion and saute'd the peppers and onions in a tbsp of extra virgin olive oil for several minutes. Then I added a clove a fresh garlic minced. Instead of beef I used ground turkey to cut down on fat and used beef broth instead of water, omitting the beef boullion granules. Came out great and we loved it. Will make it again."

"This was an awesome soup, but I did make a few changes as others did...used beef broth, added a large onion & a little garlic to meat when browning...Also spiced it up with a palm full of dried basil and a lesser amount of dried rosemary, thyme & marjoram....Tasted just like the stuffed peppers Mom used to make. Everyone gobbled it up (Also used sweet red and yellow peppers since some have digestion issues with the green)"

"This recipe was good. I used beef broth in place of the water and the boullion and also only used half of the amount called for, for a thicker soup. The flavor was rather mild and could use some spice, but it was good. I added velveeta cubes on top, that melted over the soup, which greatly enhanced the soup! Makes tasty leftovers too."

"I thought the tomato base tasted on the bland side. So, like one of the reviewers, I added a couple dashes of garlic powder when browning the ground beef, which definately zips it up, plus, I added about 3-4 dashes of worcestershire sauce, and 3 shakes of cayenne pepper to the soup. This recipe is easily customizable to your family's taste buds! I will definately add to my recipe file! Thanks!"

"I made this recipe a few days ago and we are just finishing up the left-overs. This soup was GREAT. I did make a few changes to it but didn't do anything unusual. I used 1 1/2 lbs ground beef and added 4 cups of cooked rice to the soup. 2 cups of rice wasn't nearly enough. It had too much broth with that small amount. I did use Beef Stock instead of water because water doesn't "bring anything to the party" if you get my meaning. The soup was excellent and I will definitely make it again. Thank you for a wonderfull recipe!"

"This recipe does call for "2 cups COOKED long grain rice", so I don't know why it would turn out gummy. You are supposed to cook the rice before you add it to the soup. This is absolutely a wonderful soup. Even my husband who doesn't like stuffed peppers, or green peppers at all for that matter, loves this soup. I add a small chopped onion, and saute the onion and green pepper when I brown the ground beef. Drain. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Delish!"
