  • 1 pound of ground chuck
  • 1/2 cup instant rice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • Advertisement

  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 3 large peppers cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar


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
