I was searching for a good stuffed bell pepper recipe that I could put in the crock pot and didn't find what I was looking for. I came up with this one and they were absolutely DELICIOUS!

I've made this recipe twice now - each time for people who swore they didn't like stuffed peppers. I used red peppers because that's what I had, and they worked great. I didn't have lean ground beef - and my advice would be to make sure that you use lean. It got a little greasier than I'd have liked, but they were still delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove tops of peppers, remove seeds and clean out.
  2. Place in crock pot so that all 5 peppers stand up right.
  3. Mix beef, onion, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, garlic, garlic salt, salt and pepper. (I mixed with my hands).
  4. Add rice to thicken the mixture.
  5. Add Worcestershire sauce and 8 oz. can of tomato sauce. (I now mix with a spoon).
  6. Spoon mixture into each pepper until pepper is full.
  7. Pour 14 oz. tomato sauce over each pepper and on the side of the peppers (to go in the bottom of the crock pot).
  8. Add 4-6 oz. water (I used the tomato can to use the rest of the sauce) on the sides of the peppers so that they are sitting in the sauce/ water mixture.
  9. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
