Ardei Umpluti cu Carne | Peppers Stuffed with Meat
Recipe type: Entree
Ardei Umpluti cu Carne | Peppers Stuffed with Meat is a Romanian food recipe also with onion and rice.
  • large green peppers
  • 2 tbs. butter
  • onion
  • ½ lb. chopped meat (pork and veal)
  • sour cream
  • 2 tbs. uncooked rice, rinsed
  • 1 egg
  • parsley, chives and fennel
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup soup stock
  • 1½ cups tomato sauce
  • lovage, dill
  • 2 tbs. bacon drippings
  • 1 tbs. flour
  1. Prepare the stuffing as follows: Fry in butter, ¼ of the onion finely chopped until soft. Add a sprig of chopped parsley and ½ lb chopped meat. Heat, stirring constantly then add rice. Cover and let stand while you prepare the peppers.
  2. Select large green meaty peppers, one for each person served. Wash in cold water, cut out the stem carefully and through the opening remove the membranes and seeds with fingers. Place in a pot, cover with boiling water and keep immersed for 3 to 4 minutes. Discard the hot water, add ice-cold water and let remain for another 3 to 4 minutes. Take out the peppers and lay them on their sides for the water to drain out.
  3. To finish the stuffing, put the meat and rice into a mixing bowl, add one whole egg, a little finely chopped parsley, chives, fennel, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well together with your hands. Stuff the peppers, leaving about one inch on top unfilled to allow for the swelling of the rice.
  4. Place the stuffed peppers in a deep saucepan standing up, top with a little sour cream and sprinkle with some chopped parsley. Now pour on a mixture of ½ cup of soup stock (or water) and ½ cup of tomato sauce. Cover and let simmer slowly.
  5. Make a brown sauce as follows: Heat 2 tablespoonfuls of bacon drippings, add ½ of a finely chopped onion and fry to a light brown. Add a heaping tablespoon of flour and stir constantly until it is brown. Now, stirring constantly, add one cup of tomato sauce slowly and ½ cup of cold water and then cook slowly. Add a pinch of lovage and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cook for 10 minutes, then pour over the simmering peppers and continue to simmer until cooked.
