    The Wallaces's Note:

    Posted for ZWT6. If you can't get lamb subbing with more ground beef would work.

    Units: US | Metric

    Vegetables for stuffing (Choose one option)

    • 4 medium tomatoes, tops cut off and hollowed for stuffing
    • 6 medium zucchini, cut into 3-inch lengths, hollowed out with a corer, placed on end for stuffing
    • 4 medium bell peppers, tops cut off and cored and seeded for stuffing



    1. 1
      In a 2-quart covered saucepan bring 2 cups of water to boil. Add the rice, return to the boil, cover, and turn off the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Drain and cool before proceeding with the recipe.
    2. 2
      Mix cooked rice thoroughly with the stuffing ingredients.
    3. 3
      Melt butter in skillet over medium high heat and saute garlic for a few minutes.
    4. 4
      Add meat with spices and cook until browned.
    5. 5
      Fill the vegetables loosely with the rice and meat mixture. The rice will expand during cooking, so do not pack; leave room at the top or the sides.
    6. 6
      Arrange the vegetables in a covered, deep skillet.
    7. 7
      Simmer, covered, along with the water, tomato sauce, and lemon juice on low heat (30 minutes for bell peppers and zucchini; 20 minutes for tomatoes).
    8. 8
      Check sauce levels occasionally to see that it is not evaporating. If it gets low, add more hot water, tomato sauce and lemon as necessary.

      I like the flavors in the recipe and the recipe would lend well to additions. I elected to use very lean ground beef & stuff green peppers. Once cooked the filling is very loose. I think next time I might mix with the raw meat & bake so things held together more like a stuffed pepper. I sprinkled the top of the peppers with Penzey's BBQ 3000 seasoning and thought it added a nice touch. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6~ NA*ME
