4 bell peppers
1 pound ground beef
tomato sauce


Cut the top off the peppers, then rinse them out and boil them for 15 minutes. The peppers become very tender.

Scramble the hamburger then put it in a bowl. Cook the rice (white rice works best).

Mix the hamburger and rice together and add sauce. Mix till it is all fully mixed.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

When it is all mixed you put it in the pepper and in a pan large enough to hold the peppers upright. (I use a pan I use to make meatloaf with).

Add sauce to the top of the pepper and cook for about 20 minutes.

cook's notes

I am sure there are other recipes out there but like I said I did this my own and got creative and tried it and cooked it ever since.

Measurements would have been helpful but the biggest thing I liked about this recipe was that it called for cooking the peppers first. Finally figured out why my kids didn't like stuffed peppers and that was because the peppers weren't cooked first in the other recipes I've tried. This was basic but good (and my kids are little so simple is better at this age)

My husband has been begging me to make stuffed peppers like his mom used to make. Most of the recipes I showed him were more elaborate than this and she was a very simple cook so I tried this one and he said it was exactly what he remembers. I wasn't sure how much rice was supposed to be used so I just used some leftover rice and added it until I thought it was the right ratio of rice to ground beef.

This is how my mother-in-law always makes stuffed peppers. The only thing different is we don't cook the bell peppers first. Just cut off the tops and rinse out the seeds, then put the beef and rice mixture in them.
