31 Days of Slow Cooker Recipes: Stuffed Peppers

I admit that I am not a huge fan of peppers. I’ll use them as an ingredient, but eating them as a main dish? It’s hard for me to do. And yet, I love stuffed peppers. I know, I don’t get it, either. So here is a tasty way to enjoy stuffed peppers that you can easily make right in your slow cooker!

Ingredients for Stuffed Peppers

  • 6 medium size green bell peppers
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 medium size onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups finely chopped raw cauliflower
  • 1 cup finely chopped raw carrot
  • 1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano flakes
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth

How to make Stuffed Peppers

  1. Cut tops off of the peppers and save them. Remove all the seeds and membranes.
  2. Set the peppers open side up into the slow cooker.
  3. Put the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the chicken broth in a large bowl and mix, breaking up the ground beef and pork, and making sure everything is combined well.
  4. Fill the peppers with this mixture.
  5. Set the pepper ‘tops’ back on the peppers. The peppers should be over-flowing with the meat mixture, so the tops won’t perfectly fit closed on them.
  6. Pour the chicken broth into the slow cooker around the peppers.
  7. Set the slow cooker to LOW. Cover and cook for 7 to 8 hours, until peppers are tender and meat is cooked.

Serves 4 to 6.
