Recipe Ingredients for Beef Stuffed Peppers

4 bell peppers
1/4 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 egg white
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 tablespoons canned corn
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1 tsp ground black pepper
3/4 cup low-sodium tomato sauce

Recipe Directions for Beef Stuffed Peppers

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Pour 1/4" of water into a baking pan. Cut off the tops of the bell peppers, then carefully remove the seeds and membranes (pinch them out with your fingers or use a paring knife) and discard. Lightly coat the skins of the peppers with the oil. Place the peppers cut side down into the baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the beef, egg white, onion, corn, parsley, wheat germ, black pepper, and 1/4 cup of the sauce.

  3. When the peppers are ready, remove them from the oven. Reduce the heat to 350F. Fill each pepper with 1/4 of the beef mixture, then return the peppers to the baking pan cut side up (the pan should still have about 1/4" of water in it).

  4. Bake for 30 minutes. Stir together the horseradish and the remaining 1/2 cup tomato sauce and add a little to the top of each pepper. Bake for 15 minutes longer, or until the meat is no longer pink.
