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!"
"These are very good. I did make my own tomatoe sauce, take a 14oz can of stewed tomatoes and add a little tomatoe juice and blend with stick blender works great. Did not blanch the peppers used more sauce so they steamed . Will make again cover and cook until meat is 165 use all the tomato sauce"
"These are good! They do take longer to cook...it took an hour or more both times I made it. I used mushroom soup in place of the tomato sauce one time and it is good both ways!"
"Since we are empty nesters I was glad to find this recipe for two. They were really good, will definately be on my menu again!"
"My husband really liked these. I found it a bit hard to know when they were done. I had them in the oven for about 1 and a half hours and it still didn't look done even though I think it was."
"I love these! Don't use to small of casserole dish though, because once the juices get to flow over they can easily over flow. YUMMY!!"
"These were really good! Hubby really liked it, and says ok to make again! That's when I know I've cooked something tasty!"
"I've made this recipe a few times. I usually use red peppers (I just think they taste better!) and it's pretty basic, I melt on the cheddar cheese for the boyfriend and he loves it. This recipe is SUPER SIMPLE! If you are an apprehensive or beginner cook like I am, this recipe will be easy-peasy for you :) Also, you can usually get 3 peppers out of it incase someone wants seconds!"
"I always use Garlic flavoured pasta sauce for this and drop a chunk of cheese in the bottom ( in addition to the cheese that is mixed in ) so the bottom is extra cheesy."
"Excellent, classic stuffed peppers"
"I have made these several times. I usually make more so I have leftovers. They are good re-heated."
"This recipe was delicious! I will never go back to the stoufers frozen peppers. Thanks again for the GREAT recipe! Will be making again and again!"
"This was delicious. We are a family of 4, so I made more. I used regular rice instead of instant rice. This recipe is a keeper!"
"We used Red Sweet Peppers instead of the green and it was fantastic. A definate 'DO OVER' in our house!"
"This was yummy!!!"
"Hubby & I made this recipe last night, but instead of green peppers, we used sweet red peppers, cut in half (we doubled the stuffing portion of the recipe). It was FABULOUS! The stuffing was nice and moist and the flavor with the red peppers was very good. A definite DO OVER at our house!"
