My mom used to make the best ground beef peppers onions recipe, It was always so delicious, and I always looked forward to it.
It’s really quite simple to make.
If you look at the ingredients of a stuffed pepper separately, it doesn’t seem all that exciting. A bell pepper, ground beef, some rice, some cheese… But somehow when you combine them, magic happens, and it becomes something much greater (and tastier) than the sum of its parts. Our Stuffed Pepper Skillet is no different – it has that same delicious synergy that a stuffed pepper does, but well, there’s no stuffing to be done. It’s a deconstructed version so you get that same signature flavor quickly and with very little effort.

How To Make Ground Beef And Peppers Skillet
Add the ground beef, onion and bell peppers to a skillet over medium high heat on the stove. Cook until the vegetables have softened and the meat is completely browned. Drain any excess fat.
Place the minced garlic, oregano, basil and salt and pepper to taste into the pot and stir to combine, sauteing another 30 seconds.
Stir in the diced tomatoes, beef broth and rice.
Bring the mixture to a light boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook covered for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle the cheese on top of the mixture, place the lid back on the pot, and cook until the cheese has melted.
