  • 2 medium green peppers

  • 1/2 lb. steak

  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 1 TBL butter

  • dash of hot sauce

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 slices provolone cheese, halved

  1. Cut the tops off of the green peppers, but no the bottoms. Slice the peppers in half, lengthwise. Wash and pull out all the seeds. Pat them dry and set aside.

  2. Very, very thinly slice the steak against the grain, as thin as you can get it.

  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and salt and pepper and stir every few minutes, letting the steak get brown. When it's almost cooked all the way, add the onion and mushrooms. Cook until the onions are soft and transparent.

  4. Spoon 1/4 of the filling onto one green pepper half. Top with two half slices of provolone and then put on another 1/4 of the filling. Top with the other green pepper half. Repeat with the other pepper.

I am going to try this tonight. Except I am going to bake the peppers with the filling. I will let you know how they come out. They were awesome. I put them in the over at 350 for about 20 min just enough to cook the peppers a little. I also did not cut the peppers in half. I put the cheese in the bottom added a little of the filling and then more cheese and more filling then bake.

@juliek4, you could always steam the pepper before filling it. It would only take a few minutes extra, and you could have a soft, moist green pepper. Or you could cook the filling halfway, fill the pepper and bake in the oven until the meat is completely cooked. Just be sure to put a little water in the bottom of the baking dish and cover it.
