Beef Stuffed Bell Peppers

on August 23, 2012

The bell peppers, carrots and tomatoes were fresh from the garden; still warm from the sun. I scraped the dirt from those vibrant little carrots myself. I posted stuffed bell peppers a couple years ago using a mix of ground turkey and pork. These are the beef version. Stuffed peppers are a meal in themselves; a classic Russian and Ukrainian dish. Enjoy!

Ingredients
