I found this little gem of a recipe last fall and let me tell you. It rocks!
I decided to substitute barley in it for the rice because barley has some excellent health benefits.
♦ EXCELLENT source of fiber and protein
♦ Cholesterol and sodium free
♦ Helps REDUCE cholesterol! (This is great considering my hubby fights genetically high cholesterol!)
The recipe as-is below, makes quite a bit. So cut it in half, or freeze some!
Stuffed Pepper Soup
(revised from Taste of Home)
♦ 2 pounds ground beef
♦ 2 quarts hot water
♦ 1 can (28 oz) Tomato Sauce
♦ 1 can (28 oz) Diced Tomatoes, undrained
♦ 2 cups cooked long grain rice -or- 2 cups cooked barley
♦ 2 cups chopped green peppers
♦ 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
♦ 2 tsp salt
♦ 2 tsp beef bouillon granules
♦ 1 tsp pepper
In a Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until peppers are tender. Yield : 10 servings
(I had to improvise in this picture with tomatoes. Used what I had on hand!)
Wow, this looks fantastic!!! I think I’ll get the ingredients when I go to the store today! Thanks for posting!
I referenced your post on my blog today. 🙂
i made this awhile ago, and i think its time for it again! loved it! we added soy sauce, garlic and onion. and mixed ground chuck with italian sausage. so yummy
Yep, thinking this is whats going to be for dinner sometime this week!
It looks tasty and it is so colorful and pretty!
Could you sub ground turkey instead of beef? Sounds yummy!!
Absolutly love this soup…Thank you Clare!
Can´t wait to try it! thanks for the recipe! – Dani
Two questions: Would it be ok to substitute the beef with ground turkey and what is bouillon granules? Can’t wait to try it!!
Ground turkey can be substituted for a lot of ground beef recipes. I sometimes mix 1/2 and 1/2 of each. It saves money and fat.
Beef Granules are in the soup section. You can either buy bouillon or granules. bouillon is cubes and granules is like a sandy texture.
I believe I have these ingredients on hand. I might have to make this tomorrow (we have dinner at church tonight…) Pinning this! Thanks. 🙂
I loved this recipe. Thanks for the barley idea. I am going to start using barley more often. The last time I made it I had a lot of shredded carrots so I added some.
can you substitude cauliflower instead of rice i am LCHF plan ????
I’m sure you could, but I’m wondering if it would be too soft?
