These stuffed peppers were REALLY good. I even took another one for lunch the next day and it was still just as good as the first day. These were a little more time consuming that I would like seeing as how I always do crockpot stuff before work, but it still wasn't that bad. Probably could have at least cooked the rice before hand which would have saved some time.
I used a mixture of a few different recipes in order to do these so I'm going to try my best to remember exactly how I did it. But, I definitely recommend these if you like stuffed peppers.
1 lb. of ground beef
1 cup cooked rice
1 small onion diced
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
3 tsp. ketchup (many recipes called for diced tomatoes or crushed tomatoes which we don't like, so we added a little more ketchup.)
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup water (or enough to coat the bottom of the crockpot)
1. Combine the ground beef, rice, onion, worcestershire, ketchup, cheese, and garlic in a small mixing bowl. Use your hands to incorporate everything together. (We kept out the spaghetti cause because we didn't want the stuffing to get too mushy.)
2. "Stuff" the peppers with the mixture and place in the crockpot. I left the tops on but it's up to you what you want to do.
3. Pour the water into the bottom of the crockpot to surround the peppers.
4. Set on low for 6-8 hours. About an hour before eating top the peppers with spaghetti sauce. (We heated up the rest and used it at our leisure while eating.)
