I keep telling myself I'm going to blog about some of the recipes I make, whether they are made up or ones that I follow. I think my Stuffed Peppers I made today are worthy of being the first.
I don't usually have the best of luck with Stuffed Peppers. Not sure why, maybe it's because I never use a recipe. Maybe not. I didn't use a recipe today. I just used the force. It worked.
Here it is......a rough explanation of what I did. My sister will hate this. She needs exact instructions.
1c cooked brown rice
1lb ground deer/beef mixed browned
In the pan I browned the meat in, I then sauteed some onion, garlic, mushrooms, and kale in EVOO until soft and wilted. Salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 lg can of tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and then simmer for a while. :-)
Clean 4 or 5 green peppers and cut off the tops. Clean out the seeds. Mix the rice, meat, and a little bit of sauce together. Spoon that mixture into the peppers until overflowing. Pour sauce over top until covered. Sprinkle with Parmesan (shaker) cheese and then top with shredded mozzarella. Bake on 300 degrees or around there for an hr or longer, checking to see when the peppers get soft. I'm not sure on exactly how because I left to get a massage and my hubby finished the baking. Oh man, were these delicious! There was only 1 left, which I will send for lunch with my hubby tomorrow. Wish there was more leftovers though! Next time I will double or triple this recipe. Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm! I think the best part is that tomorrow's dinner is chili, so I already have some extra rice and meat and sauce that I will add together with some beans and taco seasoning and Viola! Dinner is served.
I need to get better at blogging about food. I didn't take any pictures of my creation. I will do better next time.
