Instant Pot Stuffed Peppers With Meat And Rice

If you’re a long time reader of the blog, you know I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on a new cookbook full of frugal Instant Pot recipes. During the process I’ve been cooking up a storm. Today I thought I’d share my recipe for Instant Pot Stuffed Peppers. It’s a whole meal in a pepper including meat and rice and it’s absolutely delicious. In the end I decided not to include it in this particular cookbook because buying bell peppers can get quite pricey. I still wanted to share the recipe though because it’s quite tasty. And who knows, it may make an appearance in a future cookbook.

Instant Pot Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 large green peppers
  • 1 lb. ground lean beef or turkey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 can french onion soup
  • 2 x ¼ cup water
  • 1 ½ cups uncooked white rice
  • 1 tbsp. oil

Peel and dice the onion. Cut the peppers and remove the seeds.

Set your pressure cooker to Sauté mode.

When cooker is hot, add oil to pot, and then add diced onions. Sauté onions until brown and caramelized.

Add ground meat, salt and pepper. Brown meat, breaking it into small pieces.

Add a french onion soup, rice and water. Mix. There’ll be some liquid from the meat already. Be careful not to add too much water to the mixture so the rice won’t get too wet.

Cancel sauté mode. Cover cooker, making sure to lock the lid. Set steam release to seal.

Set cooker to high pressure for 8 minutes.

Quick release after cooking is done. Stir rice & meat mixture.

Stuff green peppers with mixture.

Remove extra mixture from cooker. Add about ¼ cup water to cooker.

Return stuffed peppers to cooker, set cooker to steam or 4 minutes on high pressure.

For firm peppers do a quick release, for softer peppers allow the pressure to release naturally.
