Great fast dinner idea. I added mexican rice to mine and made a mexican type red sauce to go over the bell peppers.

It could use a little more spice and flavor.

Great fast dinner idea. I added mexican rice to mine and made a mexican type red sauce to go over the bell peppers.

This was my first try at a stuffed pepper recipe. I did add 1 cup of cut up mushrooms....I am a mushroom lover. I will fix this again.

I just made this tonight & it is really good. I used ground turkey instead of beef & brown rice vs. white. I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on top & it was yummy! :)

I really enjoyed the change-up with the steak sauce instead of spaghetti sauce. Everyone in my family enjoyed it. Will be making it again for sure! Thank you!

These were a lot of fun! We followed the recipe for the most part, but replaced the rice in the filling with cous cous (a substitute in a jiffy! no one missed the rice) and used a steak "splash"...

Wonderful recipe! I added italian sausage and it gave it great flavor! We will definitely be making this again.

I used red bell peppers instead and added shredded pepperjack cheese. Also, I like to put the tops on while they are baking.

Soo Good. I also use the same recipe for "Stuffed Zucchinis": works great!!!

This was a great recipe. I made it vegetarian by adding Grillers meat substitute and used fresh tomatoes in addition to the tomato sauce and used brown rice. Hubby and kids really enjoyed this...
