Growing up, T.W.O. grew up with a traditional Russian dish called Golubzi, which are cabbage rolls stuffed with ground meat, rice, carrots, and garlic. This dish is definitely a favorite, but we decided to change things up and stuff peppers instead! Check it out!
-1 to 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef, lean
-1 cup basmati rice, cooked
-1 cup carrots, shredded
-1 can (8oz) tomato sauce, seasoned with herbs
-1/2 cup Crimini mushrooms, chopped
-4-5 Large Bell Peppers
-1 can stewed tomatoes
Preheat oven to 350°F. Begin by mixing the ground beef (uncooked), rice, carrots, tomato sauce and mushrooms together. Season with salt, garlic powder and pepper.
Next, cut the bell peppers in half and remove seeds. Stuff each pepper half with meat mixture and place into a Pyrex.
Pour the stewed tomatoes over the peppers. If there are large pieces of tomato, cut them into smaller pieces.
Cover Pyrex with foil and place into oven. Bake for about 30 minutes. Remove peppers from the oven and place slices of mozzarella cheese on top and place back into the oven on broil. Once the cheese is melted and slightly brown, take the peppers out of the oven and serve!
If you are not stuffed now, you will be after eating these!
