    I was SO excited to try this recipe and ended up SO disappointed! I cooked it on low all day but most of the rice was still raw. I followed the recipe exactly as directed, so I’m not sure what when wrong.

    Made this for my family last night and it was a hit, even with the anti-veggie fiance ;-) Had the leftovers today for lunch and the flavor remained. Will make again

    Just made this recipe for today’s dinner. It turned out rather well for me as I made it an guess what is considered to be an oval shaped crockpot that is a four court one. There are just. Two of us . So I made enough for two meals since the green peppers were rather large sized. I tried mixing the rice in uncooked and it turned out done all the since I choose to use low and eight hours. This is recipe with keeping and it was easy. I think I may tmore of your recipes on this site. It was so nice to put the meal in let it cook for most of the day by putting on this morning and it was done at a tmmm

    Did anyone cook their rice before they combined everything and put it into the crock pot or did they mix it in raw?

    Made this today as we had a ton of green peppers in our garden and a church potluck…. browned the hamburger and used 14 smallish to medium sized green peppers. Followed the recipe ingredients but since the hamburger was already cooked I set our crockpot on low and cooked for 3 3/4 hours. Turned out great! The rice needed just a bit longer but the flavors were wonderful! yay! Next time I might pre-cook the rice too. I will use this recipe again!

    Made this for the Bunch a few nights ago. LOVED the way the house smelled :)
    We used ground beef instead of turkey and grated the onion, everything else was the same. It had GREAT flavor, however it was clumped together and hard for picky kids to eat around the veggie they don’t like. Next time I will precook the meat a bit and make 2 different kinds, some with veggies some without!

    GREAT recipe! Thanks Crockin Girls

    Made this today. Used 4 lrg.peppers. Used ground dark meat turkey & 1/2 c. of converted rice. Did not brown the meat as recipe didn’t mention that. Used all the seasonings + 1/4 c. ketchup in the meat mixture. Used 1 can of tomato soup & 1/2 can water for the sauce.Placed in 5qt. crock on a bed of baby carrots.
    Cooked on Low 11am to 5pm. Served with sauce and parm.cheese…meat mix was very soft but with good flavor. Maybe browned beef would be a firmer texture.

    Leah, Go ahead and brown the meat and drain before stuffing the peppers. The meat can be just slightly raw. You always want to brown your meat (except meatloaf) so it will not be so greasy.

  9. Leah Z.

    This may be a stupid question but, do you brown the meat before putting in the crock pot?

    I add a half cup of shredded chedder cheese to the meat mixture. Cause everything tastes better with cheese! LOL

    Love how you made this even healthier, Marie! You cROCK!

  13. Marie R.

    I used red peppers, organic carrots, organic brown rice & fresh garlic. Instead of ketchup I used a can of rotel & abt 1/4 c water. It is my aim to cook as healthy as possible. Thanks girls, it was fantastic!
