Yesterday, I used the green peppers and cabbage I got to slow cook stuffed green peppers and stuffed cabbage rolls.   I doubled up each meal using the recipe below, making four meals in my very large crockpot.   Two of which I’ll be using this week and two that I’m going to hold onto for a later date. It worked perfectly, since I simply used the same recipe to make the stuffing.

Stuffing Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Cooked Brown Rice
  • 1 Pound Ground Hamburger, Chicken, or Turkey
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Diced Onion
  • 1/4 Cup Diced Green Peppers
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 1 Egg

Mix ingredients in a large bowl.   For cabbage rolls, boil approximately 12 leaves for 2 minutes to soften.   Cool, then place stuffing in leaves and roll with 2-3 leaves each.   Use toothpicks to hold close.   For green peppers, cut the top off, then fill with the stuffing.

Place in a crockpot.   Mix 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 can of water, 1 TBSP of brown sugar and 1 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce.     Pour on top and heat on low for approximately 8 hours.   As an alternative, you can top with pasta sauce or tomatoes sauce.   For a quicker meal, bake in the oven for at 350 for approximately 20 minutes.   Top with cheese before serving, if desired.
