    I make these once a year for my hubby's birthday, along with stuffed cabbage. I use red bell peppers because they are sweeter. I also use spaghetti sauce in the meat mixture and top the bell peppers with it. Then I add grated cheese to melt and they are ohhhh so good. Hubby's just love them.

    Interesting posting and lots of contributions. Thanks I made my version of Unstuffed Cabbage Casserole from a recipe I had found on Facebook. Extra lean ground beef, garlic, chopped onion and green pepper, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, celery seed, parsley, chopped cabbage --- but needed more help on the spices. Hubby and I were at a loss. I think I will add taco seasoning when I heat up the "planned overs." I made an extra large batch so I could freeze some homemade convenience food.

    We served the veggie/meat mixture over brown rice. DH told me that it was a good recipe. If he likes it, I know it's a definite keeper......

    Roast the cleaned peppers in a 400 oven for about 15-20 minutes before you stuff them.

    We use tomato juice or a mixture of sauce and diced tomatoes(I like tomato chunks, DH and kids do not) then put a can of saurkraut on top of the tomato mixture.

    I use a jar of marinara sauce. Just dump it over the stuffed peppers after they go into the crockpot.

    I never "stuff" the peppers as I get major heartburn if I eat them. I love them but they hate me. I just make "meatballs" instead and use a few cut up peppers in the sauce to flavor it, 2 or 3 peppers do the trick. I use tomato juice and spices for the sauce. I make a similar recipe for "stuffed" cabbage; it's time consuming and a pain to stuff all those leaves of cabbage. And both recipes taste great, can't tell any difference.

    I like to use spagetti sauce or even pizza sauce from a jar or make your own.

    DH doesn't like green peppers, so I use red or yellow (which reminds me, they are on sale this week and I should do up some dinners for the freezer). I saute onion, celery, the chopped pepper tops, shredder carrot (and/or zucchini) lots of garlic and sometimes even some chopped spinach (it was a great way of hiding those dreaded veggies from the kids!), add the browned ground beef and diced canned tomatoes. I sometimes add a can of Rotel too. Let it simmer, season to taste, stuff it into the peppers and then top with whatever tomato sauce I have, again adding extra seasoning. Serve over brown rice.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.
