Inside-out Stuffed Peppers
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 65 min.
This was delish! I changed a few things after reading reviews. I cooked and used brown rice first. Used ground pork and diced chili seasoned diced tomatoes. A real comfort food casserole.
Sorry but there is no substitute for the real stuffed peppers. I do cut them in half before stuffing and they seem to bake much better and the tomato sauce soaks into the ingredients better. I al use Minute Rice with the burger and onions and egg. My family loves them even though they do take time to make; they are worth it!
I like stuffed peppers but this is easier. The rice does cook for me if I add enough liquid; lately I've taken to adding a small can of V-8 or tomato juice in addition to the amount of water called for in the original recipe. This extra liquid seems to do the trick with the rice and adds a little extra flavor. Good recipe!
I've been making Unstuffed Cabbage for years. It's the same process as the Inside-Out Stuffed Peppers. The rice will not cook completely if it is not cooked first. Precook it at least. But if your going to take the time to precook, you might as well cook it till done.
I have been making this recipe for over 20 years and my husband and I love it. I do use V-8 juice for part of the liquid which gives it a great flavor. For those who don't like a lot of green pepper, you just cut back on the amount of green pepper. One day my husband saw a recipe for taco style stuffed green peppers, so I combined that recipe with this casserole and he loved it, so the recipe is versatile. We're still loving it after over 20 years.
The first time I made this, the rice didn't cook. I solved that problem by using instant rice. Also, as one other commentor did, I used salsa instead of tomatoes, and I used 2 full cups instead of 14 ounces. I also added my own personal chilli seasoning. Finally, I used sharp cheddar, or as we call it in Canada, old cheddar. I always do that. Easy changes, and much better than assembling stuffed peppers! Nevertheless, great base recipe!
I followed the recipe, except I added some garlic and omitted the cheese. It was mediocre at best. The cheese would not have added enough flavor. Thanks, though.
It taste good but following the recipe I cannot get the rice to cook through and failed 2 times. I ended up adding more water and cook longer on stove.
Super delicious and Super easy! My entire family loved it.
My family all gave this dish positive reviews. I added about an extra 1/4 C water as I was concerned the rice would soak up to much moisture. The result was perfect for our tastes!
