Ingredients for the filling:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 150 grams onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon Hungarian Paprika
  • 500 grams know-your-farmer 80% lean ground beef
  • 10 grams garlic, minced (two large cloves)
  • 1 cup oven roasted tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste

Ingredients for the Peppers

  • 5 medium bell pepper


Instructions for Peppers

  1. Per-heat oven to 400F; cover sheet pan with parchment paper

  2. Wash and slice peppers in half length-wise so the stem shows on both halves; clean out seeds and membrane carefully with grapefruit spoon

  3. Place face-down on parchment covered sheet pan; bake for 20 minutes

  4. Remove from oven; cool face down

Instructions for Filling:

  1. When peppers are in the oven, add EVOO to heavy skillet on medium high heat; add chopped onions and saute until translucent

  2. Add beef to onions; season and saute until completely browned, but moist, stirring constantly to break up ground beef

  3. Add minced garlic; stir-fry in for about 30-45 seconds until fragrant

  4. Add oven-dried tomatoes; combine well and re-season to taste

  5. Set aside to cool

Stuffing the Peppers

  1. Pat dry pepper 10 halves with paper towel; set open side up on new parchment covered sheet pan

  2. Place 1/4 cup filling into each 1/2 pepper cavity; once all are filled, freeze overnight on sheet pan

  3. Wrap well; place in freezer bags labelled and dated

Cooking the Peppers

  1. If making only one serving (1/2 pepper stuffed), place it in a bowl with a scant 1/4 cup water; microwave on high for 2 minutes

  2. Drain and serve; I always cover mine at this point with an ounce or 30 grams of Monterey Jack Cheese (and melt it on top).... mmmmm!
