Stuffed peppers is one of our favorite ways to incorporate grass-fed ground beef into dinner. We prefer to cook all of the ingredients in a skillet first to create the stuffing, then transfer it into the peppers, and then bake them all together.
• Grass-fed beef
• Red, yellow, and orange peppers (not green)
• Cauliflower rice
• Black beans
• Cheese of choice
Pretty much any vegetable you want. Spinach, kale, and broccoli all work well.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook the grass-fed beef in a skillet with some coconut oil until all the pinkness of the meat is gone. Drain the oil if you want, but I leave it there for extra flavor and nutrients.
3. Add in the cauliflower rice, onions, garlic, black beans, and any optional vegetables.
4. Cook in the skillet on medium heat, covered with a lid, and stir occasionally.
5. While ingredients are cooking, wash and prep peppers by cutting of the very top and removing all of the inside seeds.
6. Once cooked, stuff the peppers. I like to add in a spoon full or two of stuffing and then a layer of cheese, alternating back and forth until the paper is full. For some amazing texture, cream cheese can be added as well.
7. Place the peppers upright in a baking dish and bake in the over for 45-60 minutes depending on how soft you want the peppers.
