ground beef recipes? - Page 2

post #21 of 22

Pesto sauce makes a good substitute for tomato sauce on pizza.  I also make what I call a Greek pizza--I spread the marinade from marinaded artichoke hearts on baked pizza bread, sprinkle Italian herbs over that and top with the chopped up artichoke hearts, red onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and feta cheese crumbles.  Bake for 10 minutes.

I don't think I've seen stuffed peppers suggested. I made some for dinner last night. 


Stuffed red peppers


6 large red bell peppers

1 lb ground beef (I use extra lean)

1 onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/3 cup parsley, chopped

1 tbsp. paprika (I used 1 tsp. smoked paprika and 2 tsp. sweet)

1 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp allspice

1/4 cup fine bread crumbs

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup + 1/2 cup or more tomato sauce


Remove about 1/2 inch of the tops from peppers and set peppers aside. Dice the tops (minus the stems). 

Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Remove and drain. 

In the same skillet, saute the onion, garlic, diced pepper tops, and parsley until soft, about 5 minutes. Add spices and stir for 1 minute. 

Return meat to the pan, mix well. Mix in the bread crumbs and then the egg. 

Mix in 1/2 cup tomato sauce. 


In a 13x9 in. baking dish, spread the remaining tomato sauce. Fill each red pepper with the meat mixture. Bake at 350 F for about 30 to 40 minutes, until the peppers soften. 



I think most recipes suggest filling the peppers with an uncooked ground beef mixture and baking longer - an hour or more. I prefer to brown the meat first, but you may prefer to skip this step.
