Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers (Ardei Umpluti)

Here is a really easy and delicious recipe. The same ingredients go well for stuffed tomatoes or stuffed zucchini.

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 peppers
  • 1 pounds ground pork
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 cups uncooked rice
  • Half chopped onion
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 bunch chopped dill
  • 1 bunch chopped parsley
  • 1 can tomato paste

Preparation:

  • Clean peppers – remove tops, seeds, and membranes
  • Arrange peppers in a dish standing upright – you can either bake it or cook it on top of the stove
  • Mix the meat, eggs, rice, onion, dill, salt and pepper

  • Stuff the peppers
  • Cover with water mixes with the tomato paste
  • Add parsley on top and cook until the peppers are tender
  • Serve with sour cream

ENJOY!
