Lazy Version of Stuffed Peppers

Here's what I do when I want stuffed peppers, when I'm trying to watch my weight.

Chop 1 med. onion and 1 large or 2 med. green peppers. Place in fry pan with a little water and cook until slightly tender. Set aside.


Brown meat. after meat is browned dump in colander and run a lil of hot water on meat to get rid of excess grease, return to pan.

Add peppers and onion mixture to hamburger.

Rice: add 1 cup rice, 2 cups water to a med pot bring to boil stir then cover pot and reduce heat to barley a simmer. Cook about 20 minutes time water is gone.

Here's the sauce I make for it. I make a lot and freeze the left overs for another meal.

  • 1 large can tomato sauce
  • 1 large can tomato puree
  • 1 small can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 small can of rinsed mushrooms
  • Place all this in a crock pot.
  • Chop 1 small onion, and green pepper and saute with a lil water just till slightly soft.

Add this to crock pot. Along with your seasoning.

  • garlic powder
  • oregano
  • basil
  • pepper

Add quantities to your taste.

I make this in the evening and let it cook over night with the lid off.


To serve as a meal: Mix meat mixture with cooked rice and put your sauce on top at the table. This meal has no added salt or fat.

I have my own lazy version if you'd like to try it.

Pat out hamburger patties (the # you need to feed your family), season, & fry. Drain off excess grease. Slice a medium onion & place split rings in pan, along with some pepper slices (red, green, or yellow), pour in enough tomato juice to cover the meat completely and simmer until veggies are tender. If I had to estimate, you would have approx 45 min. in the preparing this. I always serve with mashed potatoes covered with the tomato gravy. BIG hit in my family. I hope you enjoy as well.

I saw a recipe on TV a day or two ago on using red, green and yellow bellpeppers. It was to slice them in halves and remove all seeds. Fill with a raw hamburger/meatloaf mixture and bake in the oven. I do not have the temperature of oven and the cooking time for this. Can you help me?
