Mix together ground chuck, rice, egg, onion, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, catsup, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Arrange pepper halves in a baking dish. Fill with meat mixture. Mix together remaining tomato sauce, water and sugar. Pour over green peppers. Cover with a tight fitting lid or plastic wrap. Microwave on medium high for 20 to 25 minutes until meat is no longer pink and peppers are tender.
Note: you can use smaller peppers but then you will need to have more - however many to use up meat mixture. This will re-heat and freeze nicely.

Good recipe. I altered it a little to cut down on fat: Substituted "veggie crumbles" for the chuck (also could use leaner meat), and added Italian seasoning (crumbles are rather tasteless and only add texture/soy). I know your original would be yummy, but watching fats. CayC from Green Cove Springs, FL
