When Jack Frost starts nipping at my nose, it’s time to turn to one of my favourite Winter comfort foods, homemade soup! Today I thought I would share my recipe for Stuffed Pepper Soup, getting it’s name from a soup version of a classic stuffed pepper! Dive in!
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1½ green, red or yellow peppers, cut into thin strips
- 2 stalks celery, sliced
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 box (900ml) beef broth
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- ¾ cup white rice
- 1 small can (156ml) tomato paste
- 1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/1 tsp dried thyme
- ½ black pepper
- optional: tobasco sauce to taste
- Cook beef in a heavy bottom pot over med-high heat until browned. Remove beef, pour off fat and set aside.
- Reduce heat to med. and add peppers, celery and onion and cook for about 5 min. Return beef to pot.
- Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 min.
I have played around with this recipe for a couple of years, feel free to use a seasoned version of the diced tomatoes, I like Herb and Spice and also, Hunt’s actually makes a Green pepper, celery, onion style that fits this recipe perfectly. I also use Club House Black Pepper Medley for the black pepper, I like the bigger pieces of pepper that you can see and find it adds a really great taste. For me, hot sauce is not an option, it really adds something to this recipe and really kicks all the flavours up a notch!
