    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Tomatoes stuffed then baked in the oven. Choose the most flavoursome tomatoes you can lay your hands on and, particularly if making this recipe for guests, for a more attractive presentation, choose tomatoes with stalks, and leave the stalk attached to each tomato. Delicious with your favourite salad. We've enjoyed this dish with a potato salad and salad greens. Adapted from a recipe in a March 2005 issue of the Woolworth's 'Fresh' magazine. You can use other variations of rice if you prefer or a mixed rice. Because tomato sizes are so variable, you may end up with slightly more filling than will fit into the tomato shells, in which case you may score a solo meatball which could be cooked with the stuffed tomatoes (perhaps covered with a small piece of foil). Or do what Sheynath did (see her review) and use the stuffing to stuff a pepper.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    stuffed ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Spray a large pan with oil and heat over a medium-high heat; add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and saute until soft, stirring for 2 minutes; add the ground beef, stirring, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until browned. (You may prefer to remove the onions, garlic and mushrroms from the pan while browning the meat to prevent them from burning.).
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 200°C.
    3. 3
      Cut a thin slice from the top of each tomato and set it aside; use a teaspoon to remove the tomato flesh (well drained of juice) and juice; place the tomato shells in a baking dish; chop the tomato flesh and set aside; and discard the juice or save it for possible use in a stock or soup or casserole.
    4. 4
      Stir the rice, chopped tomato flesh, cinnamon and mint through the browned beef mixture, adding the onion, garlic and mushroom mixture if this had been set aside earlier; season with salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste; spoon the mixture into the tomato shells; replace a tomato top on each tomato; spray with a little olive oil; and bake for 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      Serve with your choice of salad greens.

      I decreased the amount of cinnamon, as I wanted just a hint of it in my meat mixture. There was just a hint of cinnamon flavor, which I liked a lot! My friend and her DH both enjoyed them along with me and gave them 5 stars, so 5 stars it is! The mint gave it a unique flavor and one that we thought was a nice addition to the mix. I will make these again, and next time might try Kitten's suggestion and try lamb or sausage! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Bluemoon! Made for 123 Hit Wonders 3/09 Linda

      these are delicious, they are quite similar to a Greek recipe for stuffed tomatoes that I have made in the past using ground lamb, I used a prepared package of wild rice to make things easier and used seasoned salt, wonderful flavor, thanks Bluemoon!

      This had a very unique flavor. I have to admit, I increased the amount of ground beef, and also increased the amount of cinnamon. I halved the recipe, only making 4 stuffed tomatoes...but my tomatoes were huge, and I think I should have used the full amount of all the ingredients! I put cheese on top 2 of the tomatoes towards the end of cooking time to try and get a teenager to eat this....but I think the ones without cheese tasted better! I used couscous instead of rice, because I already had some leftover and needed to use it. I think it still tasted great! I am going to try this stuffed into bell peppers next time. I think that would be even better!
