Recipe – Stuffed Paprika

Recipe – Stuffed Paprika

My Spanish friend, who’s got the recipe from his German friend, taught me to cook Stuffed Paprika (bell pepper) last week. I couldn’t remember when was the last time I eat stuffed paprika, maybe never (!), so I found that this food is amazing! 😆

I tried to remember all the ingredients and made my own meal today. Maybe it’s quite different from his recipe, but the end result is amazing. So I don’t care x)

This recipe is enough for two. Perfect for romantic Christmas dinner. (yea, right!)

Ingredients:

  1. 2 big red paprika (bell pepper). Find the equal size and ones that can stand perfectly 😛
  2. 250 g of ground meat (I used beef)
  3. 100 g of shredded mozzarella
  4. 150 g of crushed tomato
  5. 1.5 liter of water
  6. 3 cloves garlic
  7. 1/2 small red onion
  8. 1 block of vegetable stock
  9. 1 tablespoon of Hungarian paprika powder (or normal paprika powder)
  10. 1 teaspoon Salt
  11. 1 tablespoon Sugar
  12. I used powder of: pepper, parsley and basil

How to cook:

  • Cut red onion to small pieces and crush the garlic. Combine all with ground meat. Add salt.
  • Open up the top of the paprika and remove seeds.
  • Stuff the meat inside the paprika. Put shredded mozzarella on top of the meat and put the chopped paprika tops.

  • Boil water. Better use the small pot that fit two paprika inside, so you won’t have a lot of excess water later.
  • Put to the water: crushed tomato, hungarian paprika powder, pinch of pepper + parsley + basil, sugar, vegetable stock. Let it boiled for a while. You can always taste and add more spices based on your preference 😉
  • Put the stuffed paprika inside the boiling sauce. Put the lid of the pot and let it rest for half an hour with medium heat.
