Stuffed Bell Peppers Lena

Updated: Apr 7

  • There is no one who doesn't like stuffed peppers. A real Serbian traditional dish and everyone adores it, it is made from mixed meat and rice, my aunt's old recipe and I always stick to it, I recommend using lard for the powder if you have it. The taste is fantastic and everyone will like. Follow this delicious recipe.

Ingredients: medium, preparation: 30 min, total time:1h 30 min, total time: 2h, 7 persons
  • 1 egg

  • 2 spoons of fat

  • 10 medium bell peppers/ or 7 big

  • 500 g of minced beef and pork

  • 200 g rice

  • 150 ml tomato juice

  • 2–3 teaspoons ground red pepper

  • 3 onions/ finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic/ finely chopped

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp pepper

  • 1-2 tsp Vegeta/dry spice

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley

  • 1. 5 Tablespoon flour


Filling for peppers:

  1. Take a medium 10 bell peppers, wash it and clean it of stalks and seeds.

  2. In one pot, put the fat, fry 3 finely chopped onions, put pepper, and fry 500 gr. of minced beef and pork until all the water comes out.

  3. Then put 1 cup of rice 200 gr. and put ground red pepper, 1 clove garlic chopped, parsley leaves and mix everything well. When the mixture is ready, turn off the heat and put an egg and mix well with a spoon and set aside.

  4. Then filling 10 pieces of bell peppers and put them in a pot to cook until soft. When stuffing peppers, you can decorate them, where there was a stalk, with tomatoes or potatoes as you wish.

  5. I usually always use stuffed peppers, bacon that I cut into cubes, and dry ribs because it gives a very good taste to the dish. Be sure that when you pour water, the water is 2-3 cm lower than the peppers, because you need also a place for the sauce.

  6. Put in a pot also little peppers and dry spice for your taste.

  7. After 1 hour make the sauce in a special pan, put a little oil or fat.

  8. (I use fat, because, it is healthier) when the fat heats up, put half a spoonful of flour, add 2 cloves of garlic and stir it quickly until it turns yellow-brown.

  9. Work over medium heat add ground red sweet peppers and pour tomato sauce and mix it well for about 10 minutes.

  10. When it is ready, pour over the peppers with the sauce and finally add a little water and let it simmer over low heat, and cover it.

  11. Cooking is about 1h and 30 min.

  12. You can add a little parsley when is done.

Buon appetito!

NOTE: My peppers are huge, so one-half of my peppers are for one serving :)
