Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir bison in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.

  • Arrange bell peppers, cut-side up, in a baking dish. Slice bottoms of peppers if needed so they stand upright.

  • Mix rice, bison, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, all-purpose seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Spoon rice-bison mixture into each bell pepper.

  • Mix diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning together in a bowl; pour over stuffed peppers.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, basting with diced tomatoes mixture every 15 minutes, until peppers are tender, about 1 hour.

Great recipe. I added another 8 ounces of tomato sauce and then fresh mozzarella slices on top of the peppers with 15 minutes cooking time left. Excellent. Read More

I made it with lean ground turkey because I couldn't find Bison. Was very good. I'm gonna sub either the tomatoes or the tomato sauce with some picante next time to give it a little kick. Read More

I found bison meat at Trader Joes and needed a recipe so this was a great find. I diced up onion and mushrooms and sauteed them then added it to the bison filling. I also used a shredded cheese blend on top (I think it's mozzarella and parmesan). Turned out great! I might try it with ground turkey next time. Read More

I added another 8 ounces of tomato sauce and sprinkled shredded mozzarella cheese on top. It didn t need to cook for the full hour just about 40 minutes depending on how soft you like the green peppers. A lot more moist than ground turkey stuffed green peppers. Read More

I made with Bison, used Ancient Grains instead of rice and I added black beans. I also added a slice of mozzarella cheese to the top of each pepper the last 15 minutes as noted by another review here and sprinkled so dried basil on top. This was really good and will make again. Thank you for the recipe. (Apologies for the duplicate pictures - first time adding pic) Read More
