Stuffed Peppers & Mushrooms

This makes a great meal for dinner and when having guest over!

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 50 minutes

Serves: 3


What you need:

  • 1kg of ground beef
  • 1 medium sweet onion diced
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 1/2 cups of bbq sauce
  • 3 peppers ( yellow & orange)
  • 6 portobello  mushroom caps
  • 4 cups shredded herb & garlic cheddar
  • salt & pepper


Step 1:  Place your ground beef in a large skillet on medium-high heat.  Diced the sweet onion and saute with butter in a separate small frying pan on high. Once the onions are cooked add to the ground beef mixture and heat until the beef if cooked through. Season with salt & pepper for taste.

Step 2: Cook one cup of rice separately.Once the rice is cooked about 25 minutes add to the onion and ground beef mixture.



Step 3:  Once the ground beef is cooked through add 1 1/2 cups of bbq sauce and let simmer on very low heat-about 2, and cover with a lid.






Step 4: Now is time to take your peppers and mushrooms and wash them. Once this is done  cut the tops of the three peppers of choice. I chose to use yellow and orange but you can use any ones you prefer.  Clean out the peppers and remove the stems from your mushrooms.

Step 5: Fill your three peppers with the mixture that has been simmering on the stove. Place a generous amount of shredded herb & garlic cheddar on each pepper; then place a mushroom cap op the top to cover the filling.  You will have three leftover mushroom caps.  Fill these with the same mixture and top with the same shredded cheese.

    My FIL loves mushroom caps like no other. We can’t go out to eat w/o him ordering them. I might try to make some at home.
