For the stuffed peppers:

  • 1/3 of a 28oz can tomato puree
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup instant rice uncooked
  • 4 medium-large peppers tops sliced off and cores removed

For the sauce:

  • 2/3 of a 28oz can tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried onion powder

To top:

  • Shredded mozzarella optional


  • Mix all ingredients for the stuffed peppers (EXCEPT for the peppers themselves) in a large bowl
  • Mix all ingredients for the sauce in a medium bowl
  • Ladle a little of the sauce in the bottom of a 5 quart crockpot. Place the peppers on top, making sure there standing up. Evenly divide the filling between the peppers.
  • Cover the crock and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours, or on HIGH for 2-3 hours. Check the peppers to make sure the filling has cooked all the way through, and top with shredded cheese if you like.
