Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Place pepper halves on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until tender but still holding their shape, about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until starting to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they're softened and release their juices, about 5 minutes more. Add steak, Italian seasoning, pepper and salt; cook, stirring, until the steak is just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in Worcestershire.

  • Preheat broiler to high. Divide the filling between the pepper halves and top each with a slice of cheese. Broil 5 inches from the heat until the cheese is melted and lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.

Very tasty! When I make this recipe again (which I definitely will be doing soon) the only change I would make would be to slice the meat in thin pieces (as stated) but then cut each slice into three or four small pieces. It would make this delicious stuffed pepper much easier to eat. Read More

I thickened it added some sour cream. It was good low salt which I do for health reasons. Read More

My kids who generally aren't pepper eaters loved it! Definitely will be making again. We used chicken this time which was delicious but plan to give the steak a try next. Read More
