Recipe does not indicate whether the ground beef should be browned. Assumed that since it required raw egg and breadcrumbs (like a meatloaf or meatballs) that this was reasonable.I made the meat mixture as directed. Just bit into RAW ground beef, even after an hour in the oven and letting it sit for 10 minutes out of the oven. If you ARE supposed to BROWN the beef before hand-why the bread crumbs and egg? Also, there was SO much "stuffing" left over! I *always* follow a recipe exactly if I am in doubt...
The sauces' pungency is also an issue.
I am going to chop the peppers sans sauce up and flash fry the mixture (along with ALL the leftover stuffing). I plan to season the sauce in a large pot, adding some BROWN sugar to cut the acidity and ODD taste the bitter (bell peppers release their bitterness when cooked, especially when cooked with tomato) sauce has, heat and add the flash fried chopped up peppers/stuffing. I plan to let it simmer, then transfer to a oiled 13x9 inch pan and top with cheddar cheese and bake it into a "stuffed pepper casserole". I will have to eat it another day, though.
I really do not like to give this sort of review, especially as this recipe has so much sentimental value to the submitter. I kept imagining someone serving raw meat to a small child or anyone with a compromised immune system, so I felt a general warning was needed.
