Ingredients

  • 1 cup water

  • ½ cup long-grain brown rice

  • 1 pound ground bison

  • 6 green bell peppers - tops, seeds, and membranes removed

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose seasoning (such as Vegata®)

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Directions

  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.
