  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.

Great recipe. I use ground turkey or chicken or vegetarian gound soy. Takes some time to cook, and my kids don't like peppers, but my husband and I really like it

These were really tasty! I used spicy Italian sausage instead of ground beef, and precooked the rice to help cut the cooking time down. Also added a little bit of cheese on top.

Fantastic! Delicious, despite the following changes because of time/materials on hand: a) Used ground chicken b) sauteed the onions in a little olive oil, added paprika, then browned the chick...

Very similar to my Hungarian grandmother's recipe, but hers is much more flavourful and the sauce is thicker. She does not use sour cream in hers, however. The rice should be fully cooked, not j...
