As many recipes exist for stuffed peppers as for meatloaf. Here is one really good one.

Rose's Stuffed Peppers:

  • Make one batch of basic Italian ground beef mixture
  • cook it, breaking up the chunks, until brown - can use a microwave (with stirring every 3 minutes) or a frying pan
  • pour off the grease
  • cut tops off 5 large green peppers with as large a hole as possible while still not cutting down the pepper's side
  • wash, remove seeds and white tissue from pepper's interior
  • fill peppers with cooked meat mixture, put lid back on
  • place in a large sauce pan
  • cover with sauce (below)
  • bring to a boil then lower heat
