So we went to the farm over the weekend and did the pick-your-own fruits and veggies thing. So much fun! And I’m glad stuffed peppers won because we picked a lot of yummy peppers. Here’s out to make them. Thanks again to everyone who voted!
1 lb lean ground beef (80% / 20%)
3 inches of day old baguette (crumbled) – you could also use 2 slices of white bread or a handful of breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons of chopped red onion
1 handful of parsley
1/2 cup of grated pecorino cheese
1 egg lightly beaten
dash of red pepper flakes (optional)
splash of milk (whatever you have on hand is fine)
salt, pepper, drizzle of olive oil
Mix all of the above ingredients in a bowl — use your hands, it’s fun! Cut 2 green peppers in half. Remove the seed and ribs. Place cut side up in a baking dish with sides, season with salt and pepper. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Stuff the mixture inside each pepper — it’s okay if it mounds up on top a little bit. Pour left over tomato basil sauce over the top — pick up the recipe from my Pizza Topped with Arugula and Prosciutto post. Sauce should come about 1/4 way up the pepper. Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 45 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink. Cover for the first 30 minutes with a piece of tin foil. Serve over brown or white rice and top with grated pecorino cheese. Enjoy!
This makes a great crock pot meal too. The prep is exactly the same, just make sure you put sauce down first, so the peppers don’t directly touch the bottom of the crock pot. Set on low for 8 hours and dinner is ready when you come home from work.
