Great comfort food for a chilly day. The pepper, rice and ground beef are a meal in itself. Great comfort food for a chilly day. The pepper, rice and ground beef are a meal in itself.
Number of Servings: 6


    Green bell peppers - 6 medium
    Lean ground beef, 85% - two pounds
    Egg - 1 large
    Minute Rice - 2 cups
    Onion soup mix - 2 envelopes
    Water - 1 cup
    Hunt's Italian Sausage tomato sauce - 2-24 ounce cans


Cut off tops of green peppers and scoop out seeds. Discard tops and seeds. Wash peppers and set aside.

In large bowl, mix ground beef, egg, Minute Rice and onion soup mix together well with hands. Divide this mix evenly into 6 balls.

Stuff each meatball into a green pepper. Repeat process until all peppers are stuffed. Place peppers into a large pot. Pour tomato sauce over the peppers. Add one cup of water to pot.

Cover with lid and simmer on medium-low heat for approximately 90 minutes. (Slow cooking is the key here.) Stir gently occasionally to ensure sauce/peppers don't burn.
