  • Heat oil in a lrg saucepan over med heat. Sauté 2 chopped onions till soft & translucent. Stir in tomatoes. Season w/peppercorns, allspice berries, ground allspice, oregano, marjoram, salt & pepper.
  • Cook over med heat for 15-20 minutes. Pour over peppers in roasting pan. Cover & bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove peppers & transfer sauce to a blender (or use hand blender). Pureé sauce till smooth. Pour sauce back into pan & reheat. Whisk in sour cream just before serving.
  • Note on 8/27: I did not try this recipe b4 I entered it, but I have now. This makes a farily lrg amt of stuffing & it is best to halve the peppers & mound the stuffing equally as pictured. This does not chg the cooking time. The stuffed peppers are very good & the sauce is the "shining star" -- so use it generously. Enjoy!

    I love the stuffing in these peppers, they have a very good flavor. I did cook the ground beef in the skillet with the onions because that way the beef is well done and does not clump together after being stuffed in the peppers. I also cooked the peppers in some boiling water for about 10 minutes just to soften them up a bit before baking. I am sorry to say, however, we did not care for the cream sauce. I think we just prefer a thinner sauce on our stuffed peppers. I did love the flavor of the sauce before I added the sour cream so I think I will just omit the sour cream next time and use crush tomatoes. It is still a very good stuffed pepper recipe and those who like a thick sauce will like this. Thanks for posting!

    I agree this is a very delicious stuffed pepper recipe. I cut the recipe in half. The sauce turned out great. My family enjoyed this very much. Im tossing out my regular recipe for stuffed pepers and this is the one I will be making from now on. Thanks for posting this recipe twissis!

    I am so glad I made these one day and ate them the next. They were good when I tasted them right after they were made. They were great the next day when the flavors had some time to marry. The stuffing is very straightforward--the sauce is the star. A very bright flavor. I used low fat sour cream which reduced the fat and calories without altering the taste or texture of the sauce--still thick and creamy.
