Serves 4




4 capsicums, any color
5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
1 clove of garlic, peeled and choppe
450g of lean ground beef
1 1/2 cup of cooked rice
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 tsp of dried herbs provence
Fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp of worcestershire Sauce
Dash of tabasco sauce


Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, cut top off peppers and remove seeds. Add salt to boiling water, then add peppers and boil, until brilliant in colour and their flesh slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Drain, set aside to cool.


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Heat 4 tbsp of the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook a minute more. Remove pan from heat, add the beef, rice, tomatoes, and dried herbs, and season generously with salt and pepper. Mix well.


Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil inside the peppers. Arrange the cut side of the peppers up in a baking dish, then stuff peppers with filling.


Combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl, then spoon over filling. Add 1/4 cup of water to the baking dish. Place in oven and bake for 40-50 minutes.

Needs a bit more salt the next time I cook this. Consider adding whole black peppercorns to get it more of a kick. All in all, it was a good meal. Very homey and wholesome.
