  • Serves 6- depending on the size of the peppers
What You'll Need
  • 6 bell peppers
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 3/4 cup arborio rice
  • 1 onion, diced and sauteed
  • 2 tablespoons oil for onion
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  1. Wash peppers, cut the tops and remove all the seeds and membranes.
  2. Place ground beef, rice, sauteed onion, eggs, garlic, parsley, salt and black pepper in a bowl and mix.
  3. Stuff each pepper and keep on the side. (Do not over stuff, rice will need some space to expand)
  4. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a deep large saucepan, add 4 tbsp flour and stir, let lightly brown. Add paprika and stir for about 15-20 seconds.
  5. Add tomato paste and water (4-5 cups), stir and bring to boil. (It will look like tomato soup) Season with salt and black pepper.
  6. Place the peppers standing up, the sauce should be halfway up the peppers, add water until it reaches three-quarters of the peppers if needed. Bring to boil.
  7. Turn the temperature down and simmer for about 50-60 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.
