Almost Stuffed Bell Peppers

I tried this tonight when I was looking for another way to use ground beef.  It turned out great!  Even my 9 month old loved it.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 large green pepper cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups rice 
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 2-3 cloves minced garlic


  1. In a large skillet, brown beef; drain. Set beef aside and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet saute green pepper, onion, garlic.
  3. Combine water, tomatoes, and seasonings; bring to a boil. Add rice and bouillon cube. Reduce heat.
  4. Stir in rice; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is done and vegetables are tender. Stir in beef; return to the stove and heat through.
