For the following recipe, the cooking time takes approximately 1h and 20min so the peppers get soft.
- 6 big peppers
- 600 gr ground meat - mixed pork, beef)
- 100 gr rice
- 1 egg
- 200 gr sour cream
- 200 gr tomato sauce/puree
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots
- spices: salt, pepper,paprika, dill, parsley
We prepare all the ingredients, wash and cut the peppers, taking out the seeds, grate the carrots and cut the onion. The rice also needs to be boiled, not completely though.
We mix the carrots, onion, meat, rice and spices in a large bowl. At the end, we add the egg and we continue to mix for a short while.
Then the fun part begins: stuffing the peppers :)
For the sauce in which peppers will boil, we need to mix the sour cream, tomato sauce, salt and pepper.
We arrange the peppers in the pot and we add the sauce:
We cook for at least 1h, on low fire. To see if they are ready, just take one pepper out and check under the "lid" :)
We served ours next to a very fresh salad, with dressing made of yogurt and a bit of oil olive ;)
