One of the best comfort food dishes, without a doubt, is stuffed peppers. Amazingly easy to make and full of flavor, nothing makes us feel warmer on a cold night than tearing into a plate of these beauties.
Have you ever wanted to learn how to prepare Italian stuffed peppers at home? Here’s a recipe for you to try.
- 3 Bell Peppers
- 400 g ground beef
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- One cup tomato sauce
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon red wine
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1.5 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ chopped white onion
- 10 slices mozzarella cheese
Start off by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F.
Next, you’ll want to halve your peppers and remove the seeds and all of the “guts” from the inside of them. Set them aside on a baking dish lined with aluminum foil.
Once you’ve done this, add the olive oil to a large frying pan and heat on medium heat. After you’ve done this, add the ground beef, tomato sauce, balsamic vinegar, red wine, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and chopped onion and cook. Stir occasionally.
When you see that the meat is almost cooked, add 4 slices of mozzarella cheese and stir in. This will give the peppers an added boost of creamy flavor.
When your meat is done cooking, fill the insides of the peppers with the ground beef mixture. After they’re full, top them with a slice of mozzarella cheese.
Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes, and enjoy!
