Instructions
 

  • Cook the rice as the package suggests, but do not add butter or oil. Let it cool for 10 minutes.

  • Evenly distribute the rice mixture into the bell peppers using a spoon.
  • Place the stuffed bell peppers into a large, deep 3-quart saucepan.
  • Pour the remaining 1¼ cups of vegetable juice around the bell peppers in the saucepan.
  • Over medium-high heat, bring the saucepan contents to a boil, then lower the heat to maintain a simmer.
  • Cover the saucepan and let it simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and the beef is fully cooked.
  • Serve each bell pepper in a serving bowl, accompanied by some of the sauce from the pan.

Tips and Tricks


Substitutions: Ground turkey or chicken can replace beef. For a meat-free version, try tofu, beans, or corn.

Spices: Adjust spices to your taste. Add red pepper flakes for heat or smoked paprika for a mild flavor.

Rice Options: Use leftover rice to save time or cauliflower rice for a low-carb alternative.

Cheese Varieties: Try mozzarella for a creamy texture or cheddar for a sharper taste.

Meal Prep: Assemble the peppers beforehand and store them in the fridge for a quick cook-up later.

Storing: Keep leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

Freezing: Freeze the assembled but uncooked peppers. Thaw in the fridge then cook as instructed.

Choosing Peppers: Select bell peppers with flat bottoms for stability while cooking. Trim the bottom slightly if necessary.
