I like Stuffed Peppers, and when I did not have an oven, I made these and simply steamed them in a pot with some water, they were excellent. These can be steamed, baked, or even made in a slow cooker, cooking time varies. No need to use green bell peppers, feel free to use red or yellow ones. This is a versatile recipe, if you do not want to use cheese, leave it out, if you want to add mushrooms, added them, this recipe can be adapted to many tastes.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 220 C, cut off tops and remove seeds and pulp out of the bell peppers. Place bell peppers in baking dish. A 9x9 dish will hold 4, a 9x13 dish will hold 6.
  2. Dice tops of peppers. Mix together ground beef, onion, eggs, tomato paste, oregano, diced tops, rice, salt and pepper. Fill each pepper half full with meat mixture, add some shredded Cheddar cheese to each pepper, not all, just some.
  3. Top with remaining portions of meat mixture. Any meat left over, just pack around the peppers in the baking dish.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, covered. Remove from oven and top each pepper with additional cheese, reduce temp to 180 C and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes until cheese is golden brown and meat is cooked through.
Recipe Notes

500 grams of minced pork is about 55 Baht, ground beef would be about 110 Baht for 500 grams. Bell peppers can range from 30 to 40 each. For this recipe, 4 peppers at 35 Baht and 500 grams of beef, cost is about $1.85 per person. If using minced pork, cost would be $1.43 per person. Cheese of course is additional, but a block of cheese will make several meals so I do not factor that in.

The good thing, you have an entire meal, the meat, the dairy from the cheese, a vegetable, and a tomato sauce.

Family recipe, I have been eating these since I was a little child.

  1. When I was growing up, these were made with ground beef, living where I do in Thailand now, minced pork is much easier to get so I use that. The photos shown are mine, taken last night as I prepared these. I over estimated the ground pork so I have a good meat loaf on the side. Since it is pork, I cooked for nearly 1 1/2 hours (it will not dry out), then removed from the oven and added the additional cheese on top and returned to the oven for another 10 minutes. These were not covered during the baking. They turned out wonderful!
