I gave it 5 stars although I haven't tried this recipe yet but I don't understand cooking the hamburger meat first when 6 to 8 hours in a slow cooker should cook the meat. What am I missing? Heck, I'm still trying to figure out how to get 2 beaten eggs off the ceiling from my last attempt at cooking :) Regards, Danny

This is a great basic simple recipe so I agree with OldCatMan-no need to cook the meat prior to stuffing. That takes away from the "simple" part. Do as directed but no need to cook meat prior to stuffing!!! BB

Needs to be cooked in a red sauce, the beef broth did not help the flavors and left the meat tasteless.

I substitute quinoa for rice. The second time that I made this, I sliced the peppers...kind of casserole-like. This tastes amazing and is so easy to make!

Juice isn't worth the squeeze. It is tasty enough but just too much effort for what the end result is. If rather do it right in an oven.
