People, you’ll want to listen up. Why? I’ve created one of the most tasty dishes yet — even the Mister agrees
This recipe serves two, so if you are cooking for your family, double it or increase the ingredients accordingly.
To start, you’ll need a 1/2 lb. of extra lean ground beef (preferably local) — Note: I RARELY eat red meat (maybe two times a year, but I think this recipe is worth it. If it’s extra lean and local, I see no harm in it (personally! – different strokes for different folks).
For those that do not eat red meat: ground turkey or chicken would work — just might not be AS delicious. Vegetarians, a ground meat substitute should work, as well.
First brown the meat in a skillet over medium heat. Next add one whole diced tomato (preferably local or homegrown- tastes so much better!) and 1/2 chopped Vidalia onion.
Now it’s time to spice things up! Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cumin and 1 teaspoon of THIS GUY….
Emeril’s All-Natural Steak Rub (Thank you Foodbuzz Tastemakers!)
Simmer about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to incorporate flavors.
Next, hollow out two red bell peppers. Fill with meat mixture.
Cook at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
I’m not kidding you when I say this dish was mouth-watering spectacular! It was super easy and I love how it incorporated the fresh vegetables of the current season. The combination of spices was key – I loved the undertone of cinnamon. The Emeril seasoning added quite a punch, without being too spicy for my sensitive palate (in regards to spices, at least!)
The whole recipe was very easy and only took about 30 minutes from slicing and dicing to chewing and chomping
