Slow Cooker Steakhouse Stuffed Peppers are filled with ground beef, rice and a steak sauce, then cooked to perfection in the crock pot.
I’m so excited to share these Slow Cooker Steakhouse Stuffed Peppers with you today!
There is nothing better than an easy, comforting dinner, that’s literally prepared in just a few minutes, but also hot and ready when you get home from work. Can I get an Amen?!
I know we’re all so super busy this time of year, and sometimes dinner gets the last thought. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been working all day, helping kids with homework and projects, running errands and then WHAM! It’s dinner time and I’m at a loss.
When that happens I usually turn to my one skillet dinners, or just grab some pizza and call it a night.
But if you’re wanting an even less stress dinner, these peppers are where it’s at.
Just lop off the tops of each pepper, (don’t forget to save the tops to dice up) and stuff with this delicious steakhouse inspired filling.
Place them in the slow cooker and off you go on your busy day.
The filling is a mixture of lean ground beef, brown and wild rice …
Let me stop right here and explain something about this rice. You can use any leftover rice that you might have. But sometimes you just don’t have any rice in the fridge, so I used a package of Uncle Ben’s microwavable rice. Um.. brilliant time saver. Just toss the rice right in with the ground beef mixture and you’re done.
More flavor options for these Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers:
- Use ground turkey in place of ground beef
- Any flavor or variety of steak sauce will work here
- Add some diced green chiles and salsa (in place of the steak sauce) for a Mexican twist
- Switch out the cooked rice for other grains like quinoa, couscous or orzo pasta
Stuff the peppers with the meat and rice mixture, then let them go in the slow cooker.
Right before serving top with some shredded cheese and cover. The cheese will melt in seconds and then they are ready to enjoy!
A complete dinner even the pickiest of eaters can get behind.
I should know, my picky eater gave this dinner two thumbs up!
