Hello lovely people! Here I am with another recipe for you. 🙂
We love them here in Serbia. And also in this household. They are pretty easy to make, they can sit in the fridge for three or four days, they can go into the freezer, and they taste soooo good!
People use all kinds of peppers for this dish, in most cases it’s bell peppers, but I like the ones you see here. So, use peppers that you like. 🙂
Here is how I made them: I fried two chopped onions, medium size, in a little bit of oil, just till it became translucent, then I added one big shredded carrot and three thumb size pieces of chopped celeriac, fried that for a minute or two more, than added 500 grams of minced ( pork and wild boar) meat (again, your choice – pork, lamb, beef…) , one table spoon of paprika, and fried that for a couple more minutes.
I took that off the heat, then added one cup of uncooked rice, salt and pepper, and combined well. Tip for you: add a bit more salt than you normally would because the rice and peppers need it also, not just the meat. 🙂
I washed peppers and took the stalks out ( by pressing the stalks into paprika ). Then, with a tea spoon I stuffed them with meat and rice, but not too much and not too dense, just lightly so that the rice could be cooked with enough space to expand. Tip for you: put the stuffing without pushing it with the spoon, just shake the paprika to set it.
I closed the openings with slices of tomato and put everything in a slightly greased baking dish or a pan.
I added two cups of water into the pan and covered it tightly with tin foil. It went into the oven for about 45 minutes on 180 – 200 degrees Celsius, and after that my peppers looked like this:
I then took the tin foil off and put the peppers back into the oven to bake until they looked like this (about twenty more minutes) :
And that is the recipe for stuffed peppers, my way. You can also use the courgettes instead of peppers, as well as eggplant, although the taste will differ. But these are also yummy. So have fun, make a whole bunch of these beauties, and you won’t have to cook for another three days! 🙂
Have a great day! 🙂
