Stuffed Peppers

This is a twist on my mothers traditional Hungarian stuffed peppers (töltött paprika). She usually uses green or banana peppers in her recipe and it’s usually just a basic mix of ground beef, rice, onion and spices. I decided to change it up by adding mushroom, garlic, parsley and Worcestershire sauce. I also used orange peppers instead, I’m not a big fan of the green pepper taste..I find it a bit bitter/ strong. Next time I make this recipe I think I’ll be adding some paprika to it! Just popped in my head now that their baking away :/

Here are the ingredients I used for this recipe!

  • 1/4 Cup chopped parsley.
  • 6 Orange peppers, Pitted.
  • 2 lbs Lean ground beef.
  • Pinch salt.
  • Pinch pepper.
  • Pinch cayenne.
  • 2 Tsp Worcestershire sauce.
  • 1 Diced onion.
  • 2 Tsp chopped garlic.
  • 1/2 Cup diced mushroom.
  • 1 Egg.
  • 3 Cups cooked rice.
  • 1 jar (660mL) Strained tomato.


Here are the instructions!

Carefully cut around the top of the pepper (stem) and pull out the seeds. Set the hollowed out peppers aside for later.

Next cook off your rice, Add 3 cups worth of rice to equal amount water and let it cook. Once ready add to a big mixing bowl. Next chop up all the veggies! so the parsley, garlic and mushrooms. Add those to the bowl, as well as all the spices and egg. Add your ground meat.. and now comes the messy part. Using your bare hands, give the mixture a good stir.


Grab a deep bakewear dish, add the strained tomato. Then set the oven to 350 degrees and let it preheat. As your waiting for the oven, start stuffing the peppers! I used a smaller spoon to assist in stuffing them. Fill them up to the top! I only made 4 peppers since it’s only the two of us eating this meal. I made little meatballs out of it and stuck them off to the side since I had plenty of room in the dish. It’s going to make a very appetizing lunch for tomorrow! Alrighty, once those are done..sit them into the dish with the tomato. Put them in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.


Here is the finished product! It smells so delicious!! It is officially boyfriend approved too haha.
