DIRECTIONS

  • Cut tops off peppers; remove seeds and membranes. Chop edible part of tops and set aside. Rinse peppers under cold water. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add peppers, cover ; reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain peppers and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Sauté chopped green pepper (from tops), chopped onion, and chopped celery for about 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, crushed garlic, thyme, oregano, basil, crushed pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Simmer for about 10 minutes, the longer the better.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine egg with remaining 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Gently stir to blend; add ground beef, rice, and 1 cup of the tomato mixture. Mix well. Stuff peppers with meat mixture and place in a 3-quart baking dish. Pour remaining tomato mixture over the stuffed peppers. Bake at 350° for 55 to 65 minutes. If desired, top stuffed peppers with a little shredded Cheddar cheese just before peppers are done; bake until cheese is melted.
