If you love stuffed peppers you’ll really love these Deconstructed Stuffed Peppers.  This is a quick and easy weeknight meal and is super flavorful, satisfying, and comforting!    



Units Scale
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced small
  • 1 large pepper, diced small, any color
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes, basil, garlic and oregano, 14.5 ounces each
  • Soy sauce to taste (I use several shakes of soy sauce)
  • 2 cups uncooked instant rice, (or you can use long grain)


  1. Cook rice according to package directions and set aside.
  2. Add ground beef, onion and pepper to a large skillet or dutch oven. Cook over medium heat until ground beef is cooked through. Remove from heat and drain.
  3. Add ingredients back to the skillet or dutch oven. Add the tomatoes, rice and soy sauce. Mix everything to combine. Heat over medium heat. Taste and add salt & pepper if desired. Add more soy sauce to taste.
  4. Serve hot!


  • If you want the finished recipe to be more saucy, you can add a little V8 or Tomato juice.
