    Ingredients needed for cooking stuffed peppers with ground beef and rice
  • Take a large pepper, wash it, and cut it in half lengthwise. Do not remove the stems. Remove the seeds and internal partitions from the pepper halves.
    4 pcs bell pepper
    Bulgarian pepper
  • Peel and finely dice the onion. Remove the seeds from the hot pepper and also finely chop it.
    1 pcs onion, 1 pcs hot pepper
    Onion, hot pepper
  • The ground meat can be any, but the juiciest, tenderest, and moderately fatty filling is obtained from a mixture of beef and pork taken in equal proportions. Place the ground meat in a bowl, add the onion, hot pepper, and rice, salt to taste, and mix well. When kneading, add water little by little so that the filling is not dense but juicy and soft. If desired, you can add a little of your favorite spices, but in moderation, so as not to drown out the aroma of the bell pepper.

  • Heat oil in a deep skillet and place the peppers in it. Cover with a lid and fry for 10 minutes.
    90 ml vegetable oil
    Tomato paste
  • While the peppers are frying, prepare the sauce. Dilute the tomato paste with water to the consistency of liquid sour cream and add a pinch of salt to prevent the sauce from being bland. Instead of tomato paste, you can use tomato juice if it is not too watery.
