SLOW COOKING THURSDAY!!!



Well Ladies I have to say that I'm so thrilled that so many of you have been participating, I've been able to expand my Slow Cooker Recipe Collection, and I can't wait to try them all :)

With fall just around the corner and so many wonderful recipes being shared, constantly, amongst the blogging ladies....I thought that it would be neat to have a feature every thursday, just for crockpot recipes.
What do you think??? Do You have some great recipes to share, or perhaps you're looking for some delicious ones to give you a reason to pull out the ol' crockpot???
Well it's thursday ladies and you know what that means. Time to pull out those crockpots and put them to good use. If you want to join in, just grab the banner and add your name to Mr Linky :)

One meal that I grew up with and I love, but don't ma
ke often enough, is Stuffed Bell Peppers. I just don't ever seem to have the time to make them, so when I found a recipe for a Crockpot version, I knew I just had to try it.



STUFFED PEPPERS


1 lb. estra lean ground beef
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 can (15oz) Spanish Rice
1 lg onion, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 lg bell peppers, tops removed, cleaned of seeds and cored, but not halved

Combine all ingredients, except half can of tomato sauce and bell peppers.

Stuff bell peppers full of mixture.

Place peppers in slow cooker. Pour remaining tomato sauce over peppers.

Cover. Cook on high 4 hours.

Makes 4 servings

EDIT: Thank you Sue for mentioning the Can of Spanish Rice. Ladies I've never seen it either, so I just use the pouches that they sell, it works fine too, it might need a little water though, I found that I had to add a little to mine, just do whatever you like for yourself :)

I saw your site mentioned on Barb's and hopped over to say hi. My husband loves stuffed bell peppers. I've never seen Spanish rice in a can though...
Looks yummy and I'll be back to visit you again when I have a bit more time!

Sandra said...

Laura I'm so glad you're enjoying this meme, I am too :)

eagles wings mommy - I had never thought of doing them in the crockpot either but it's so much easier this way and they still taste good :)

Sue - thank you so much for stopping by :) The recipe calls for the can but I just use the spanish rice pouches, actually thank you for mentioning it so that I can go and edit it for the others :)

I've enjoyed reading this one and finding recipes Sandra, thanks for doing it! I'm playing along today.
The peppers look yummy!

Barb said...

What I love about your recipe is the photo - how pretty to use the three different colors of peppers. I'm not forgetting that next time I make stuffed peppers!

OK, I came THIS close to posting the recipe for slow cooker squirrel and liver. Changed my mind. :-) I found a recipe for flank steak that sounded much, much better.

MMMMMmmmmm. Can't wait to try some of those!!


By the way, how did you come up with your S.C.T. logo? I need to figure that out so I can make one for my laugh out loud mondays. I'm amazed at the creativity of some (your included) of these blogs!

Stuffed peppers, one of my favorites, this one is a keeper for me. Thanks. Oops I forgot to do the Mr. Linky thing so I will do it late.
