  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Arrange bell peppers, cut-side up, in a baking dish. Slice bottoms of peppers if needed so they stand upright.
  5. 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.
  6. Mix diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning together in a bowl; pour over stuffed peppers.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven, basting with diced tomatoes mixture every 15 minutes, until peppers are tender, about 1 hour.

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.

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 chees...

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.

This was a great recipe. I used elk meat!
