1 - 1.5 lb ground beef sirloin or ground turkey
2 cups of cooked rice
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. Italian seasoning
4-5 bell peppers, chopped*
2 T. olive oil
1- 32oz. container beef broth
2 cans diced tomatoes
salt, as desired
[Optional - diced zucchini, small-form pasta instead of rice ]
*Note - I have used the packaged pepper and onion blend from the freezer section at the grocery (2 bags).
1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef and drain if necessary. Add olive oil, onions, bell peppers, egg and cook until vegetables are tender.
2. In large cook pot or slow cooker, add diced tomatoes, beef broth, and meat mixture. Simmer for as long as you wish (It just gets better and better as it cooks.)
3. Before serving, stir in the rice. (Flavor note - For a quick and easy rice option, we have used Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice in the microwave package. Ninety seconds and it is ready...no muss, no fuss.)
Garnish with a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese and/or Parmesan cheese, if desired.
