An inside out stuffed pepper in a skillet is perfect for a busy weeknight meal.


  • 2 tsp (10 mL) oil
  • 1 lb. (450 g) lean ground beef
  • ½   medium onion, diced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt, divided
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) black pepper
  • 3   bell peppers, any color, sliced
  • ½ cup (125 mL) long grain white rice, rinsed and drained
  • 15  oz. (425 mL) tomato sauce
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) chicken stock
  •  Optional garnish: ½ cup (125 mL) garlic croutons, crushed, Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley


  1. Preheat the oil in the 12” (30 cm) Brilliance Nonstick Weeknight Skillet over medium heat for 4 minutes. Add the beef, onion, ½ tsp (2 mL) of the salt and all of the pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, breaking the beef into crumbles, until it's no longer pink and the onions have softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add in the rice, bell peppers, and remaining salt and cook 1 minute. Stir in the stock and tomato sauce. Bring back to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 24-28 minutes or until rice is cooked. Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes.
  3. Top with the crumbled croutons and Parmesan cheese, if you’d like.

Cook's Tips:

You can double the amount of rice in this dish and use 1 ½ cups (375 mL) of broth for a more filling dish.

You can try this with ground chicken, turkey or even plant- based meat instead of the ground beef.

Try adding in a tablespoon of Bell Pepper Herb Rub to add some extra herbs and additional bell pepper flavor.
