  1. Cut the tops off the peppers and remove seeds and stems. Set aside.
  2. Place rice in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then drain water. In a large bowl, mix together rice, ground beef, egg, onion, salt, and pepper.
  3. Stuff each pepper with an equal amount of beef mixture, then place peppers in a pot large enough to hold them in a single layer. Pour tomato juice into pot. Cover pot and simmer over low heat for 90 minutes, until ground beef is fully cooked and rice is tender.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together sour cream and flour. Whisk in 1 cup of tomato juice from pot, then pour mixture back into pot. Allow to simmer an additional 5 minutes, then serve peppers with juice spooned over top.

These were great! Iadded a little italian seasoning and garlic to the filling. I also cut my peppers in half length wise. They cook faster, and sometimes a huge stuffed pepper on your plates is just too much. They cook faster also! I also cooked mine in the oven at 375 for about an hour.

Very tasty! Added Italian herbs to meat mixture- and then used Marinara sauce watered down a bit instead of the tomato juice. Baked them covered in the oven at 375 for 75 min. Served them with mashed potatoes with some of the sauce over the potatoes. Will make again!

Stuffed peppers are my husbands favorite meal, and he said these peppers are the best he has ever had, better even than the way his mom makes them. He said "Please don't ever try another recipe for stuffed peppers. No recipe can be better. You cannot improve upon perfection"
