Kathy H.’ s One Pot Stuffed Pepper Stew:

1 lb. burger
1 small onion, chopped 
3 bell peppers cut into 1″ pieces (I like all different colors)
1 T. olive oil

1. In 5 qt. Dutch Oven. Saute all above ingredients until meat is browned about 5 min. Do not drain meat.   

1 c. rice (I used Mahatma Jasmine)
1 1/2 c. beef broth
1 14 oz. can diced tomatoes (don’t drain)
1 tsp. seasonings of your choice.  basil, oregano, etc.  

2.  Add rice, broth, tomatoes, and seasonings. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover.  Cook rice for recommended time on package 15 min. (Until liquid is absorbed)

1 28 oz. can tomato sauce or 2-14 oz. cans
1-2 T. brown sugar (Start with 1 so it doesn’t become too sweet!)

3.  Pour sauce over mixture,stir, add brown sugar and warm.

This only takes about 20-30 min. to make.  This dish will continue to absorb the sauce and will get very rich and thick.  It is a great change of pace from chili.
