I tossed the ingredients into the crockpot; beef, rice, peppers, onions, canned tomatoes, broth, and seasonings. I covered and cooked it on low for 4 hours. I did use frozen ground beef for this and it turned out great! You can brown the beef first and cut about 30 mins – 1 hour off the cooking time and your beef will have a deeper brown appearance. Since the beef I used was 90/10, I wasn’t concerned about the fat content. So I just tossed it in there the way it was. When you make this dish it is totally up to you if you brown or not first. This Crockpot Stuffed Pepper Casserole will taste amazing either way.

    Really wanted to love this, but after 6 hrs on high, the peppers are mushy and not all the rice
    Is cooked. Followed the recipie so not sure what the problem is. I will probably be making it into a soup or chili. The flavors are really great, just cannot stand the crunchy partially cooked grains of rice. Would give it a Higher rating if the rice cook through and consistently.

    Lisa,

    The recipe calls for only 4 hours on high. After 6 hours the peppers would be a bit mushy. I am going to guess you lifted the lid a few times during cooking to check on the casserole. When you do that you release the heat and the steam that are needed to cook the rice. When you are cooking with a crockpot the rule of thumb is don’t peek. Sorry, that this one didn’t turn out for you.
