Tangy Stuffed Peppers Recipe
My parents were farmers, so I’ve always liked to cook with fresh vegetables. This recipe represents our part of the country, since both green peppers and rice are grown here. It’s one of my family’s favorites…the Worcestershire sauce is what makes the filling tangy.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings
- 4 large green peppers

- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

- 2. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and chopped peppers over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain. Remove from the heat. Stir in the rice, Parmesan cheese, 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce and salt. Spoon into peppers.
