Main Dishes

Stuffed Green Peppers

4 green bell peppers

1/4 cup water

1 lb ground beef

1 medium sized onion, chopped

2 cups cooked rice

1 can (8oz) tomato sauce

1 large garlic clove, finely chopped

2-3 ribs of celery chopped

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoon minced parsley

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

 4 tablespoons ketchup

Remove tops and seeds from peppers, and place them in a microwavable dish.  Add water, Cover and cook for 3 minutes in microwave.  Let stand without draining while preparing filling.  Combine beef, onion and celery in bowl and cook for 3 minutes.  Stir to crumble beef.  Add remaining ingredients except ketchup, and mix together well.  Divide among peppers.  (Once the peppers are stuffed, I just put the leftover mixture around them.) Cover and cook 10 minutes.  Spread 1 tablespoon of ketchup over top of each and cover: let stand 2-3 minutes to soften.
