Classic beef- and rice-stuffed peppers are now easier to make than ever with some help from your slow cooker.

Ingredients

6
large bell peppers
1 1/2
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
2
teaspoons olive oil
1/4
cup finely chopped onion
2
cloves finely chopped garlic
1 1/2
cups cooked white rice
1
teaspoon kosher salt
1/4
teaspoon black pepper
1
can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 1/4
cups shredded Cheddar cheese (5 oz)

Directions

  • 1 Trim tops off bell peppers; remove ribs and seeds. Set aside.
  • 2 Place beef in large bowl; set aside.
  • 3 In 6-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat; add chopped onion. Cook until onion softens, stirring every few minutes. Add garlic; cook 60 seconds. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
  • 4 Add rice, salt and pepper to beef. Add cooked onion and garlic; mix to combine. Stuff peppers with beef mixture; arrange in slow cooker. Pour tomato sauce over peppers.
  • 5 Cook on Low heat setting 6 hours; last 30 minutes of cooking, top peppers with cheese.
Tips  

Using lean ground beef makes for a less greasy finished dish.

Use any good melting cheese you like! Mozzarella, Jack or even pepper Jack would all be delicious substitutes.
