Reviews for Stuffed Peppers for Two
"This recipe has worked well, several times, with some modifications, for we two empty-nesters.Modifications: 1) cutting peppers lengthwise, instead of cutting the tops off. Keeps ‘em upright while baking, wastes less pepper, exposes more meat to oven heat, cooks faster & takes extra cheese to cover them! Win-Win-Win-Win-Win!!! 2) pre-cooking both beef and rice. That way, I know they're both done. 3) add a chunk of cheese in the bottom, before stuffing (thanks Angela320) 4) I don't blanch my peppers. We like a little crispness to them!"
"Made these for dinner last night, and they were great!...only the rice was still a little hard...next time, think I will cook the rice first!"
"a bit dense for my like, but still pretty good... will try it again to see if a few modifications will help. Also, I added fresh garlic, which gave the beef good flavor."
"These were good. I browned the beef before baking. I did not use the Worcestershire sauce. These were easy to make. They are a great meal for a week night."
"Can't beat my mom's recipe, but I enjoyed these stuffed bell peppers and would certainly make them again."
"Turned out well, but a little salty. I'd recommend cutting the amount of salt in half. Otherwise really good, though."
"Really good, will add this again..drew a blank on what to serve with it..finally realized mashed potatoes and corn would be great"
"So good thank you we will use this recipe often!!!"
"This was real yummy!"
