Stuffed Peppers Romanian Style
Serves: 4-6
  • 1.5 lbs ground pork
  • about 5 to 10 peppers, depends on the size of the peppers
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 1-2 onions finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • parsley finely chopped
  • dill finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste and other spices you may prefer
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  1. Clean out the insides of the peppers and wash thoroughly.
  2. Mix the ground meat with rice, eggs, onions, parsley, dill, salt and pepper until everything is well incorporated.
  3. Stuff each pepper really well and arrange them nicely in a big pot with the opening facing upwards if possible.
  4. Mix the tomato paste with a couple of cups of water and sour cream and pour over the peppers. Add more water if needed, it should cover the peppers.
  5. Bake at 375° F / 190° C for 2 to 3 months.... I mean hours until done. Difficult to say when they are done, you just have to taste a bit to check if rice and meat are properly cooked.
