Stuffed Red Peppers


My workplace office is really a great place with great people to spend the day with.   Everyone is part of a great support team, with laughter, helpfulness and regard for each other.  And I think the fuel of it is…………….food!  *grinning*.  Everyone loves to eat and participate.  It doesn’t take any particular reason to celebrate something with food.  An email requesting a response for anything else  is not answered as quickly as asking what we would like to bring for our chili bakeoff, or soup day, or Mexican day, or high tea etc.   We love to share recipes and discuss and admire each other’s lunches. 

Today at work a colleague was heating up a stuffed red pepper she had prepared last night for dinner.  It looked and smelled so good and a few minutes I had the recipe firmly in my hand.   As I packed up to leave work another colleague was asking her for the recipe.  This is the recipe and pictures of the Stuffed Red Peppers I made and enjoyed tonight.  Very yummy.

Stuffed Red Peppers

6 red peppers

1-1/4 lb lean ground beef

2 cups chopped onions

3 cloves garlic

2/3 cup cooked rice

2-1/2 cups tomato sauce

3 tbsp. fresh chopped parsley

1/2 tsp allspice

1 tsp salt (to taste)

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp paprika

olive oil for sauting

Take the top off the peppers and chop the tops.  Saute the chopped pepper tops, chopped onions and garlic in the frying pan with the olive oil for about 8 minutes until the onions are softened.   Into a large bowl combine the rice and the sauteed vegetables, beef (uncooked) and spices and mix well.  Add 1/2 cup of tomato sauce and mix again.  Fill each red pepper with the mixture and place them into a pot.  Spoon the 2 cups of tomato sauce over the peppers.  Bring to a boil, cover and lower heat but allowing a low boil for about 50 or until pepper is soft.  Voila.  Thats all there is to it.
