    I didn't put this one the grill, but rather in the oven for an hour. Turned out very tasty. I grow lots of pepers, so this gave me a great chance to use them up! My fiance loved it as well. - 7/2/10

    I'm actually quite tempted to try this, indoors, even though I'll have to find some way round using the ready-made sauce.
    I think these packets would work fine in the oven. I'll need to give it a think, to work out timings.
    Thanks for the idea. - 6/30/11

    Just tried this recipe yesterday. We left out the rice to save calories but it was absolutely fabulous! I was a little concerned that it might be too sweet but it was tender and very tasty. This one's a keeper! - 7/5/10
