  • 1.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup white rice, long grain
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 bell peppers (red, yellow, green or a combination)
  • 2 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 2 TB Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine 1/2 cup rice with 1 cup of water in a pot.  Bring the pot to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cover the pot for 20-25 minutes.
  • While the rice is cooking, brown the groun beef in a pan.
  • Cut the top off of the peppers and scoop out the insides.
  • Stand up the bell peppers in an oven-safe dish.  You may need to cut the bottoms of the peppers a bit to make them flat so that they stand properly.
  • Mix together the rice, beef, one of the two cans of tomato sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste (You can get them here).
  • Fill the pepper shells with the rice / beef mixture.
  • Combine the remaining can of tomato sauce with the italian seasoning and pour this mixture on top of the stuffed peppers.
  • Place the peppers in the oven and cook for around 1 hour, checking every 15 minutes to spoon the sauce over the peppers and to check for when the peppers become soft.
