    Since I am Greek, I have learnt many good Greek recipes over the years! This is one of my favourites. It's a savoury combination of lamb, rice and feta stuffed into green peppers and smothered in tomato sauce.

    This recipe looks exactly what I am after but can I just ask, do I need to brown the lamb mince before stuffing the peppers?  -  09 Oct 2013

    Really enjoyed this, I did not have any all spice or dill but didn't notice any loss in flavour. I'm about to make for a second time this evening. Also serving with warm pita bread and tzatziki  -  30 Apr 2016
