Best Stuffed Peppers Recipe Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Prepare peppers by cutting off the tops, and removing the inner flesh and seeds. Be sure to remove all the white fleshy parts as they give off a bitter taste. Reserve some of the tops and dice to add into the filling.
  • Place peppers into boiling salted water and cook for 3-4 minutes. Cook just until they are slightly tender. Remove to a plate and allow to cool.
  • Prepare rice as instructed on the back of your rice packaging. Use chicken stock instead of water for added flavor. Set aside.
  • In a large sauté pan, add ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until brown breaking the meat up using a flat head spatula. Drain the excess fat. Add all seasonings and ½ of the tomato sauce. Stir and continue to cook just to warm through. Remove from the pan and side aside.
  • In the same pan add onion, zucchini, and diced red pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened. About 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook just until the mushroom wilts down.
  • Finally add the remaining tomato sauce, ground beef, cooked rice, and cheddar cheese. Stir until completely combined.
  • Fill each pepper with the filling, packing it in using the back of a spoon.
  • Place peppers in a baking dish, cover with foil, and place into a 375 degree F oven for about 40 minutes. Remove the foil after the first 15 minutes. At the last 5 minutes, remove and top peppers with mozzarella cheese. Set to broil for the last 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted and bubbly. Enjoy!
