Stuffed Peppers with Ground Beef and Rice is a recipe that I can say with the confidence I know how to make blindfolded. It is the eldest son’s favorite meal.
Stuffed peppers are one of those meals that it does not take too much of your time. Well, what I want to say is that once it is done with prep, you just let it simmer.
The incredible taste and comfort that you get out of this absolutely amazing.
I mentioned in this post, how many dishes from when the Ottoman Empire was ruling.
They left its trace in the cuisine of Southeast Europe, and the Balkan Peninsula.
I am one of those people or you can call me a nerd. I look deep into the history of the recipes.
Actually, I did grew up with these kinds of dishes. When you start researching, connecting dots, finding the root, it is just mind-blowing what you can find.
Some would refer stuffed peppers or any vegetable that is stuffed as a “dolma”, and I do call it that way too.
Not only that I love stuffed peppers but also sarma (rolled stuffed cabbage leaves), yaprak (stuffed grape leaves /or Collard greens), etc.
You can pretty much stuff them with ground lamb, pork, chicken and most common is with beef and rice.
The unique taste and aroma that particularly beef gives to me are simply irreplaceable.
However, there are options like I said that you can change and use any ground or minced protein that you and your family prefer.
I am a complete sucker for dishes that slow cook on a stove in the fall or wintertime.
It is one of the things that I am actually looking forward to all year long.
You could hear bubbles in the pot, aroma wrapping your whole house. Oh, I cannot wait to dig in and mop the floor of my plate with freshly baked bread.
Dishes like that give me life and making me extremely happy. I hope it will do the same for you.
