Thread: Stuffed Peppers 5 pts each

  1. #1


    This is a favorite of mine. It's from Secrets of Fat-Free Cooking by Sandra Woodruff, RD.

    8 large green bell peppers

    1 pound 95% lean ground beef
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    4 cups cooked brown rice
    1 cup shredded nonfat or reduced-fat cheddar cheese

    32 oz tomato sauce (I usually also add a small 8 oz can so the sauce goes further)
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1) Place meat in large skillet & cook over medium until meat is no longer pink. Drain. Stir in onion, chili powder, pepper & salt & cook few minutes until onion is tender. Add small amount of water if skillet gets too dry. Remove from heat & stir in first the cooked rice & then the cheese.
    2) Cut tops off peppers & remove the seeds & membranes. Divide filling among the peppers & replace the pepper tops, if desired.
    3) To make sauce, combine all sauce ingredients in a large bowl & stir to mix. Place peppers upright in 9X13 pan coated with cooking spray & pour sauce around & over the peppers. Cover with foil & bake at 350 for 1 hour or until peppers are tender. serve hot.

    * Note: I've found that this usually takes 90 min instead of an hour. It may be my oven, but I thought I'd mention that.

    bluffview- you can almost cut the cooking time in half if you par boil the peppers in some water till they are tender. Not completely done just tender.

    My husband loves stuffed peppers. I have also found if I get this ready the night before and keep in fridge it almost marinates the peppers. Its so good.

    I will give your recipe a try! It sounds good!
