Another good soup recipe. I didn't want to measure so I just threw in 1 onion, 2 bell peppers, 1 pound ground beef, closer to 1/2 cup dry rice, and 2 cans beef broth (instead of water),and no cinnamon. It is worth making again.


Omit the cinnamon and sugar (I don't know about you, but I don't put either in my stuffed peppers...), use beef broth instead of water, use twice as much meat, twice as much garlic, add Worcestershire sauce and a good amount of Montreal Steak Seasoning. Now a five star excellent soup that lives up to its name.


While this stuffed pepper soup recipe does include a generous ratio of peppers to ground beef (it is stuffed pepper soup after all...), I found it required a lot of additional seasoning and sodium to make this soup ~taste~ like a stuffed pepper soup. Plus, cooking raw rice directly in the soup left an unpleasant starchiness which required more liquid in the form of beef stock to remedy. And as much as I enjoy and appreciate using cinnamon outside of typical sweet dishes, it, unfortunately, just did not work in this recipe. This recipe does produce a good soup -- it just takes a little extra help to get there.
