  1. Stuffed Bell Peppers in the Oven – Recipe

    October 18, 2012 by Varga László

    Ingredients (6 servings)

    • 6 large bell peppers, I found some chocolate colored in the farmers market
    • about 500-600 g ground beef
    • 1 medium onion
    • 4-6 garlic cloves
    • 2 tablespoon butter
    • 1 medium carrot & 1 medium smaller parsley root either fresh or from soup.
    • salt, pepper to taste
    • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1-2 teaspoons hot paprika
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 200 g rice
    • a few fresh parsley leaves – chopped
    • 100 g melting cheese whichever you prefer (cheddar, brie, gorgonzola, mozzarella, etc.)

    Preparation method:

    1. Chop the onion and garlic cloves.
    2. Dice the carrot and parsley root into 1 cm cubes.
    3. Cook the rice until almost done, do not overcook it because it will cook some more in the oven.
    4. In a frying pan melt the butter over medium heat and fry the chopped onion and garlic until translucent.
    5. Add the ground meat and stir fry for about 10-15 minutes until the meat is uniformly browned. If using fresh carrot and parsley add them when adding the beef,
    6. Since I used the carrot and parsley from the veal soup prepared a day before, I added them to the pan when the meat was browned already. Stir-fry for another 2-3 minute.
    7. Preheat oven to 180 C.
    8. Add the parsley season with salt, pepper, soy sauce, hot paprika and nutmeg.
    9. Add the cooked rice and fry for another minute stirring thoroughly until well homogenized.
    10. Cut off the top of each pepper, pull out the stem portion and clean of the seeds.
    11. If you prefer the peppers softer blanch the bell peppers in boiling water for abort 2 minutes. I skipped this step because mine were well ripe maybe a bit even overripe.
    12. Place the bell peppers in an ovenproof  dish cut side up. If any doesn’t stand straight up, place a small slice of pepper under it.
    13. Stuff the meat and vegetables mixture into the peppers and place some shreds of melting cheese on the top.
    14. Add them to the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes.
    15. You can serve immediately while still hot, or serve it cold, quartered, as snacks.
