My mother's famous stuffed pepper recipe.

Top Review by Mama Smurff

Very bland dish with not much flavor. I had to cook mine for 60 mins. at 350, which is much longer than the stated time for the peppers to be soft and the meat to be cooked all the way through. I may try this again sometime but will add more spices in to give it more flavor. Thanks for posting! Valerie
