Stuffed Bell Peppers

October 23, 2009

Cooking recap/pretasting: This has the potential to be the worst recipe ever.  My taste test of the original recipe with honey was rather sickening.  I only used one round of that terrible tomato-honey blend, and used salt, pepper and another 8 oz of tomato sauce trying to counter the overpowering honey taste.  And there was too much mixture left over at the end (about 12 oz?).  My hopes aren’t high, but that was a lot of work so I hope hope hope that it works out.  And now, on to the pictures!

Prep Time! 
  The recipe did not call for garlic. But garlic is oh-so-right. 
 This pan has seen better times. I didn’t do that to it.
+ Rice
+ Tomato Sauce Blend.
After +salt +pepper and +plain tomato sauce to counter the honey blended sauce.
Ready for the oven! 


Final Verdict: A smidge heavy on the pepper, and really wish I’d skipped the honey entirely. Now I know. And knowing’s half the battle.

Final Cost: Peppers: 2 x 89 cents/pepper = $1.78
Beef: (Expensive at) $2/lb.
Tomato Sauce: 3 x 27 cents/can = 71 cents
Onion: 50 cents
Rice: already cooked at home
Garlic, Honey, pepper, salt: already in the cupboard
Total: $5.20

    Honey? Hmm…don’t want to imagine that. But this looks rather good. What I usually do is save the tomato sauce for last and put it on there after I take the stuffed peppers out of the oven. Oh, and I also stuff raw ground beef with cooked rice in the pepper, and let it bake in the oven. Makes it juicier for some reason.

    I should tell you that I see this at the top of your page, though:

    pre { word-wrap:break-word; /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */ } a span, #submitbox #submit, #searchbox .button, #subscribe li a { cursor:hand; }

    does blogger not like the layout?

  5. It looks awesome!

    But that background image needs to be chopped down a bit. Let me experiment around with the background

    You won’t need to change the code for anything

    As for bell peppers.. I hate ’em. I basically hate all bell peppers, except if they’re red or yellow and diced up VERY VERY small or garnishing dishes… so I won’t be trying this

    Love the new site digs. 🙂

    Honey? odd addition for stuffed bell peppers. my husband made these for me last week. Whilst trying to be creative the peppers did not come out cooked enough. Bum. The pepper part is my favorite! But because love prevails I acted like it was very delicious. 😉

    One thing I love about food…try, try again until you get it right!

    L.A. Daze: I like that idea – I was disappointed in how the sauce was all cooked/crusted after baking … what else did I expect, though?

    Anon: Yo? Yo!

    Sense: Thank you!! And please please leave out the honey when you try the recipe. Bad idea all around.

    And thanks for the heads up on what you were seeing in IE. Didn’t even think to look!

    FB: I’m on the fence about cooked bell peppers now … or baked ones, anyway. They don’t have the same flavor as raw or sauteed.

    MoneyFunk: I like that you played the role of supportive spouse and ate it anyway. Hope you gave feedback for the next time, though!
