We’ve got the ground beef and with minimal effort, you can make this flavorful dish for dinner this week. Check out this recipe for beef stuffed bell peppers.
- 1 pound fresh ground beef (preferably from your local butcher)
- 4 medium bell peppers (green, red or yellow…your choice)
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat your oven to 475°F. While waiting for your oven to heat, begin to prep your bell peppers. Slice the tops off your bell peppers then set aside.
Next, carefully clean out the guts and seeds inside your peppers. On a large baking sheet, spray with a non-stick cooking spray and place those cleaned-out peppers on a tray and place the pepper tops. Bake for approximately 15 minutes. Remove from the oven set aside and allow it to cool.
In a large skillet, place your ground beef, onion, garlic, tomato paste, rice, diced tomatoes and the rest of your seasonings in the skillet. Allow your meat mixture to cook around 3 to 5 minutes.
Take the tops off and fill the hollowed-out peppers with your meat mixture. Place tops back on the peppers and allow to bake at 475°F for anywhere from 19 to 23 minutes. Bell peppers and done when internal temp reaches 160°F.
