  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Brown beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Halfway through browning, add mushrooms and onion. Continue cooking until meat is fully browned; drain fat from skillet. Stir in enough gravy to bond mixture without making it soupy. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a medium saucepan of water until boiling. Place peppers in water, and boil for 2 to 3 minutes, until just tender; remove from water. Place peppers, hollow side up, in a 9x13 inch baking dish, and fill each with beef mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until bubbling. Top with cheese, and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Serve in a small pool of gravy.

I was happy to find a stuffed peppers recipe with ground beef and no tomato ingredient. This is a great basic recipe that stands beautifully on it’s own, or you can add as much of what you like ...

make sure you use all lean meat and low fat cheese, b/c the fat can add up significantly when everything is done.

WOW! This was delicious! I seasoned the meat with Adobo and pepper, otherwise I followed the recipe as is. I served it in a pool of gravy with some brown rice, and warmed Hawaiian Rolls. I sent ...

Great recipe, I added rice in my mixture and it was super.

Excellent switch up to green peppers with tomato sauce. Had enough filling for 4 medium size red peppers. Added garlic & cayenne to meat based on suggestions. Used McCormick beef gravy mix pa...

I thought these were really tasty. One thing that I forgot to add was the gravy so I'm sure that would have held the mixture together. I won't forget that again next time; I make these!
