Stuffed PeppersSubmitted by: DKRAEHLING
Melt shortening, then mix in flour to make a paste. Then add tomato paste and sugar. Add water slowly, enough that it will eventually cover the peppers. Mix the burger, rice, and eggs (I also add 2 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp Paprika and pepper). Then stuff each pepper with the mixture--should make 4-6 bell peppers. You can also make meatballs with the leftovers and just add them to the gravy, they will solidify pretty quickly. (My kids prefer the meatballs.) I cut the tops off of the peppers and throw them in the tomato gravy as well.
Great with bread and butter!
Tip: I start the sauce mixture first so that it's boiling by the time I get the meat mixture made and stuff the peppers. I boil the peppers in the tomato gravy until peppers are tender and meat is cooked, about 1 hour, seems to take much longer in the crockpot.
