Wave 1 Stuffed Peppers
I made this for dinner and thought I would share it:
2 bell peppers
1 cup of cooked brown rice
6 ounzes of very lean ground beef
2 tablespoons chopped onion
red pepper flakes to taste
pepper to taste
1/2 Tbsp oregano
1 cup diced tomatoes fresh or canned
Parmesan cheese (optional)
Cut peppers in half length wise and remove seeds and ribs. Boil the peppers for 5 minutes
Meanwhile brown beef with onion, then drain. Return beef to pan and add rice, seasonings and tomatoes. Stir well.
Lay the peppers skin side down in a large baking dish, fill each half with beef mixture ( you will need to pack it in as the peppers end up overfilled). Place dish in a 350 degree oven. Carefully pour about 1/2 cup of wtaer into the bottom of the pan around the peppers. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes. If using cheese it on the peppers during the last 5 minutes of cooking and let the peppers finish cooking uncovered.
Serves two. Enjoy!
