Italian Stuffed Peppers
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 4 hours
I had always roasted stuffed peppers until now. This recipe has them cooked in a slow cooker and they turned out perfectly; juicy and firm and cooked well throughout.
This needs more flavor. The recipe works very well in the slow cooker; however, next time, I will add Italian seasoning.
Wonderful recipe! I've made this several times with great results. I substitute shredded mozzarella for ease and only used 6 oz to cut back on calories (and barely dusted the peppers with parmesan). Definitely cook for 6 hours or more to make sure the beef and rice are cooked - the peppers will still be yummy.
very easy and good
I used ground turkey instead of beef. Other than that followed recipe as stated and they turned out GREAT! I've made these peppers twice and they are great the next day as well.
I found this to be a great recipe for the slow cooker. I let it cook for almost 6 hours on low because I was not home but the meat cooked thoroughly and the rice was tender. The mozzarella cheese was a tasty addition. I will make it for the family again. A crock pot disposable liner made clean-up a breeze.
I did not have good luck with this recipe. I halved it and cooked on low for 3-4 hours. The meat thermometer said 160 so I removed the peppers. The peppers were cooked to perfection, the rice was crunchy, and the meat was still slightly pink (but not what I would call unsafe). My husband tried to eat it but threw about half away. I did the same.
