"People are pleasantly surprised to find corn in the stuffing of these hearty peppers," confides Margery Bryan of Royal City, Washington.


  • 6 medium green peppers, tops and seeds removed
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (11 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1/4 cup steak sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large kettle, cook peppers in boiling salted water over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Loosely stuff into peppers.
  3. Place in a 9-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until no pink remains and a thermometer reads 160°.
