Stuffed Green Peppers
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 55 min.
A great way to use up your garden tomatoes. I didn’t bother to seed them and nobody noticed. I dropped them in boiling water for about 15 seconds and then into cold water and they peeled beautifully. I added cooked chunks of pork from a previous meal. Consequently I reduced the cooking to 30 minutes. A little on the bland side so I’d spice it up some more.
Our favourite stuffed pepper recipe. I make it with my garden peppers and tomatoes every year.. Occasionally, I will add a couple of Italian sausages to the ground beef, just to change it up a bit, but excellent the way it is. Supper tonight - YUM!

To mowmow01: Did you brown the meat first, then bake stuffed peppers in the sauce?
By not boiling the green peppers, the taste is more vibrant and the fresh tomato sauce makes it taste fresh of out the garden, I did however bake mine at 350 for 1hour with a cover and they were wonderful...
I love this receipe with the exception of the sodium. I reduced the amount of sodium to 1/2 teaspoon, increased the tomato sauce to 16 oz, added 2 teaspoons of sugar and eliminated the water. The sugar eliminates the bitterness of the peppers and the acidity from the tomatoes.
try rubbing the inside of the green pepper with a little salt. Takes away the "green", or bitter taste of the pepper. Also the pepper seems to cook from inside out, and is very tender.
Good recipe, however, I cooked hamburger before simmering peppers stuffed. Also needs more seasonings as were a bit bland. Otherwise a very good recipe : )
I have made this recipe before.It is very good.It is easy to make and on a hot day the oven isn't on.
