“This recipe came from my friend's mom. It is great. We've made it numerous times. People of all ages love it. Serve it without the bell peppers if your family is against them and instead put on cheddar cheese and melt. It is delicious and hearty. Our friend's daughter calls it meat rice with tomatoes. Easy weeknight meal. The difference is the worcheshire sauce and cheddar cheese. Enjoy! ChefDLH”
