Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook green bell peppers in the boiling water until soft, 5 to 8 minutes; drain.
  3. Cook ground beef in large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking into small pieces with a spatula as it cooks, until completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard excess grease. Transfer beef to a large bowl.
  4. Stir rice, celery, onion, and about half the tomato sauce with the ground beef; season with salt and pepper. Stuff cooked green peppers with the ground beef mixture.
  5. Arrange stuffed peppers in a baking dish. Pour enough water into the baking dish to about 1-inch deep. Pour remainder of tomato sauce over the peppers.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until heated through, about 30 minutes.

Great recipe! Sautéed onion, celery, and garlic with the ground beef! Will cook it again, and again, and again...??

Good basic comfort food. Easy to make and not expensive. Only change was I added 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.

Very good stuffed peppers. I had good luck skipping step 2 (boiling the peppers), and just added 10 extra minutes to the baking time.
