Holy cow, was this dish delicious! The sauce is outstanding! The secret is knowing how much salt and pepper to use. I was very conservative in following the "salt and pepper to taste" instructions, and the dish was okay. I sprinkled more on my individual serving, and it was to die for! I will proudly make this again and again. The only thing I will change is to use much more rice in the stuffing. Read More

I really didn't care for this much. Interesting idea but didn't come together for me. We put ketchup on the stuffing and it was pretty good... kinda like meatloaf baked in the peppers. Read More

Beautiful peppers but not spicy enough for my taste. I would increase the amount of oregano and the allspice. Very good sauce. Read More

Really great! The sauce is outstanding. I'm not a big fan of green peppers admittedly as I think they are too watery. Being of Czech ancestry I wanted to try this despite my green pepper distaste. I added chopped garlic to the beef mixture other than that I didn't change a thing. Read More

This is a great recipe. It would be improved on only by the addition of garlic. Never pureed the sauce and was still good with roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Read More

I've made this 4 times now and it is fantastic. I dont know how anyone can go wrong with this recipe. It has wonderful flavor and is easy to make. I basically followed the recipe and made sure I had fresh spices. I love this and I NEVER eat stuffed peppers...that is until now! Read More

This is a fabulous recipe with some changes. First I added a lot more spices to the meat mixture including cumin basil oregano garlic. It was very flavorful. I used a jarred spaghetti sauce and added onions and sour cream to it. I put a bit of asiago cheese and chedder cheese at the bottom of each pepper which I cut into the boat style. And added mozzerella on top. I served it with a zuccini and summer squash in the side and a good bread. Yummy. Couldn't taste the all spice at all - should probably use more next time. Read More

This is very good! I used up some leftover shredded beef from the Italian beef recipe on this site instead of ground beef though and that was yummy. Added extra whole allspice too! Read More

The best stuffed green peppers I have ever tasted. My partner doesn't usually like stuffed peppers but she really liked these ones. The sauce was incredible I think I may make it alone as a creamy tomato soup it was that good. I made a few substitutions: I used veggie ground roung instead of beef yogourt instead of sour cream and I didn't have marjoram so I omitted it. It would probably be even better with beef but making it vegetarian cut down on the fat. Read More
