Stuffed Peppers (Ardei Umpluti)

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


  • 7-8 peppers
  • 1 pounds ground pork
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 cups uncooked rice
  • 1/2 onion (chopped)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 bunch chopped dill
  • 1 bunch chopped parsley
  • 1 can tomato paste


  • Clean peppers – remove tops, seeds, and membranes
  • Arrange peppers in a dish standing upright (you can either bake the peppers or cook them on top of the stove so it’s up to you what pot you use but make sure the peppers fit comfortable in there, one next to each other standing upright)
  • Combine the meat, eggs, rice, onion, dill, salt and pepper

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