“This recipe is being posted for ZWT II. I was half-raised on Czech food & loved it! I confess I found this on the net some time ago, but didn't document a source. What I copied did contain the name Sylvia Sajna & said "A very delicious stuffed pepper recipe w/a yummy creamy tomato sauce."”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Cut tops off of peppers & remove seeds & membranes from inside. (See Note Below).
  2. In a skillet over med heat, sauté 1 chopped onion till tender.
  3. In a lrg bowl, combine ground beef, sauteed onion, cooked rice & eggs. Season w/parsley, salt & pepper. Mix well & stuff into peppers. Place in a lrg roasting pan.
  4. Heat oil in a lrg saucepan over med heat. Sauté 2 chopped onions till soft & translucent. Stir in tomatoes. Season w/peppercorns, allspice berries, ground allspice, oregano, marjoram, salt & pepper.
  5. Cook over med heat for 15-20 minutes. Pour over peppers in roasting pan. Cover & bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  6. Remove peppers & transfer sauce to a blender (or use hand blender). Pureé sauce till smooth. Pour sauce back into pan & reheat. Whisk in sour cream just before serving.
  7. Note on 8/27: I did not try this recipe b4 I entered it, but I have now. This makes a farily lrg amt of stuffing & it is best to halve the peppers & mound the stuffing equally as pictured. This does not chg the cooking time. The stuffed peppers are very good & the sauce is the "shining star" -- so use it generously. Enjoy!
