  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and halve green bell peppers.

    Core tomato and cut into 1/4" dice.

    In another mixing bowl, combine ground beef, rice, garlic salt, 1/2 cup water, and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Start the Dish

    Fill peppers with ground beef mixture.

    In a clean slow cooker, add 1 cup water. Add peppers to slow cooker. Peppers will fit snuggly. Top with tomato sauce, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook until ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4 hours.
