What's Cookin' Wednesday ~ Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers
Makes: 16 halves
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
What you need:
2 Green Peppers
2 Red Peppers
2 Orange Peppers
2 Yellow Peppers
(You can use your discretion on the pepper selection)
1 pound of Ground Beef
1 small onion, chopped
1  1/2 White Rice
1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce, divided
Salt & Pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 -2  Large can(s) of tomato sauce
What you do:
Slice peppers in half length wise, remove seeds & stems, set aside
In a large mixing bowl combine ground beef, onion, rice, half of the Worcestershire sauce, a few dashes of salt and pepper, garlic powder and the bread crumbs.
In a large Dutch oven or large pot of your choosing on medium heat (I have an amazing old pot that was my great grandmothers), drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil.

Stuff the pepper halves with the meat mixture and set into the pot pepper side down.
Once that step is completed with all the peppers, pour the tomato sauce over top and add the rest of the Worcestershire sauce and place lid on top of the pot.
(I use about 1 and a half large cans of tomato sauce because I like my peppers saucy)
Let peppers cook for about an hour at that temperature then reduce the heat to medium low.
The longer they simmer, the more flavor you get!
Stir with caution and as needed
I serve this with egg noodles and corn
This is how my mama served it growing up.
My peppers are better though, shh don't tell mom
Happy Wednesday!
