One thing that is so great about this dish is how beautiful it looks. A whole meal is wrapped inside a pretty bell pepper shell and looks very impressive despite how easy this recipe actually is. While there are a few steps to making this mouth watering dinner, they are all very easy and anyone will be able to make these tasty stuffed peppers.

  • Cook the rice by bringing the rice and water to a boil in a small sauce pan. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cover the pot. Cook the rice for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, set the rice aside
  • Cut off the tops of the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes from the center of the pepper.
  • Place the peppers in a baking dish with the hollow side up. If the peppers are not standing up, slice of a tiny piece of the bottom of the pepper to make it level.
  • In a medium sized skillet, cook the beef until brown and cooked all the way through. Use a spatula to break up the beef into small pieces while you are cooking it. Let cool
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cooked beef, rice, 1 cup tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Scoop the filling into the peppers, dividing it evenly between each one.
  • Bake in a 350 ̊F oven for one hour, basting the peppers with the juice in the pan every 15 minutes. The peppers should be nice and soft.
  • Top with the grated cheese and place the peppers back in the over for 5 minutes or until the cheese is nicely browned.
  • Serve while hot!
