Holy cow, was this dish delicious! The sauce is outstanding! The secret is knowing how much salt and pepper to use. I was very conservative in following the "salt and pepper to taste" instructions, and the dish was okay. I sprinkled more on my individual serving, and it was to die for! I will proudly make this again and again. The only thing I will change is to use much more rice in the stuffing.

Beautiful peppers but not spicy enough for my taste. I would increase the amount of oregano and the allspice. Very good sauce.

Really great! The sauce is outstanding. I'm not a big fan of green peppers, admittedly, as I think they are too watery. Being of Czech ancestry, I wanted to try this, despite my green pepper distaste. I added chopped garlic to the beef mixture, other than that I didn't change a thing.
