Our moms stopped by Today’s Kitchen to cook secret spaghetti sauce and stuffed peppers. Here are their recipes:
Stuffed peppers with ground beef & rice
6 large peppers (green, yellow, and red)
1 pound of ground beef (sirloin)
2 cups of uncooked white basmati rice (washed and drained)
1 large onion chopped
1 large onion sliced
2 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of garlic
1 tablespoon of fresh dill
1 tablespoon of fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
6 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tablespoon of butter
1 cup of beef broth
In a large skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil and brown the onion. Add the beef and cook until brown. Add soy sauce, garlic, fresh dill, fresh parsley, salt and pepper to taste and simmer until meat is cooked.
Add basmati rice and stir mixture for about 5 minutes. Cut tops of peppers, remove seeds (save tops). Fill the peppers with meat and rice mixture about 3/4 full.
Line a large pot with sliced onions, the pepper tops, 3 tablespoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoon of butter. Place the peppers in the pot and add the beef broth. Bring to a boil on top of the stove, then simmer covered for about 2 hours or until mixture is cooked.
Bring to a boil but turn down immediately and simmer for 1-2 hours. Stir often.
