"An old family recipe for classic comfort food passed down to me by my mom. Green peppers are stuffed with a mixture of ground beef and rice then smothered in a tangy tomato sauce. I always serve these with creamy mashed potatoes just like my Mom always did. Enjoy!"

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Cook the peppers in boiling water until softened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Remove peppers from boiling water and rinse with cold water; set peppers aside to drain.
  4. Mix together ground beef, cooked white rice, lightly beaten egg, finely chopped onion, Italian-style bread crumbs, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese in a large bowl until evenly mixed.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  6. Divide beef and rice mixture among peppers; stuff each pepper with beef and rice mixture.
  7. Place peppers open side up in a 9x13-inch baking dish or shallow roasting pan.
  8. Combine tomato sauce and white vinegar in a bowl.
  9. Pour tomato mixture over stuffed peppers.
  10. Top with 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, basting the peppers two or three times while baking, about 80 minutes.

Footnotes

  • To cut down on time I use Uncle Ben's ready rice that's done in the microwave in 90 seconds. This freezes well and goes great with mashed potatoes or potato salad.
