This recipe is compliments of my grandma, Lala. I don't know the origin of the recipe. I have no idea if she created it or stole (I mean, adapted) from someone else. All I know is that is was in the cookbook she made for some of us.
I love making these stuffed green peppers. They are super simple to make. You cook them in your microwave. They taste amazing. And *bonus* they heat up well for lunch the next day too.

Step by step
First, wash and cut your peppers in half lengthwise.
Arrange peppers in your baking dish. Make sure your baking dish fits in your microwave! (I have made that mistake before.)
Mix meat, rice, egg, 1 can of tomato sauce, catsup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a bowl. We use our hands - It's easier to mix it all together that way.
Fill the peppers with this meat mixture.
In the bowl you just emptied, combine the other can of tomato sauce, water and sugar. Stir with a spoon. Pour sauce over the peppers.
Cover your dish with its lid or plastic wrap.
I always use plastic wrap... Mostly because I can never seem to find the correct lid. It's also convenient to just throw it away after.
Now place your dish in the microwave. Microwave on medium high for 25 minutes (or until meat is no longer pink and green peppers are tender).
Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
I hope you enjoy the peppers! I'd love to know if you try them.
Not A Chef
I like to cook, but I am no chef. I don't have the vision to create masterpieces from scratch. I am excellent at following recipes and tweaking them to fit my pantry or family. And I have a great collection of recipes to share.
