    This is a great basic simple recipe so I agree with OldCatMan-no need to cook the meat prior to stuffing. That takes away from the "simple" part. Do as directed but no need to cook meat prior to stuffing!!! BB  -  07 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Needs to be cooked in a red sauce, the beef broth did not help the flavors and left the meat tasteless.  -  29 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    NO need to cook your meat for Stuffed Peppers..just add cooled rice with raw meat mixture and onions and seasonings of your choice. I add ALLSPICE to the meat mixture and put some BROWN SUGAR and some ALLSPICE in the Tomato sauce you use...such a great flavor! You will always use the sugar and allspice from now on. YUMM!  -  07 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
