Stuff it real good

Country:

  • Serves 4
  • Difficulty: Medium

Description

While traditionally made with smaller, more bitter peppers, this dish works just as well with the sweeter bell pepper. We love the simple stuffing inside! You can nom these as they are, or serve with a dollop of sour cream and let it ooze down into that filling.

Steps

1
Done

Cook the rice following instructions on the pack, then set aside.

2
Done

Dice the onion and grate the carrot, then sauté until soft. Mix in 1 tablespoon of tomato puree, heat for another 30 seconds, and then put the mixture into a large bowl.

3
Done

Add the cooked rice, fresh dill and parsley, and a couple of bing pinches of salt. Mix together. Next, add in the raw mince beef and mix in.

4
Done

Carefully cut the tops off the peppers and remove the seeds. Place the hollow peppers upright in a pan, then stuff with the beef and rice mixture before putting the pepper tops back on.

5
Done

Fill the pan with water to 5mm below the line where you cut the peppers. Add salt and the remaining tomato puree to the water.

Bring up to a gentle boil, then let it all simmer with the lid on for 20 mins.
