  2. start rice cooking with 1 cup water, boil for 15 minutes and set aside
  3. cook meat until brown draining fat with a spoon
  4. mix rice, meat, and 1 tablespoon sauce together in bowl when all is cooled down
  5. using your fingers, stuff peppers with this mixture until full, cover with pepper top which was cut off.

  7. add water as needed to keep at least 2/3s covered during cooking and cook with a cover.
  8. cook under medium to high heat (watch so it does not boil over) for about 25 minutes or until peppers seem soft (all ingredients are already cooked so it is a matter of taste, soft and squishy or al dente peppers!
