I’m so excited to share these Slow Cooker Steakhouse Stuffed Peppers with you today!

There is nothing better than an easy, comforting dinner, that’s literally prepared in just a few minutes, but also hot and ready when you get home from work. Can I get an Amen?!

I know we’re all so super busy this time of year, and sometimes dinner gets the last thought. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been working all day, helping kids with homework and projects, running errands and then WHAM! It’s dinner time and I’m at a loss.

When that happens I usually turn to my one skillet dinners, or just grab some pizza and call it a night.

MY OTHER RECIPES

But if you’re wanting an even less stress dinner, these peppers are where it’s at.

Just lop off the tops of each pepper, (don’t forget to save the tops to dice up) and stuff with this delicious steakhouse inspired filling.

Place them in the slow cooker and off you go on your busy day.

The filling is a mixture of lean ground beef, brown and wild rice …

Let me stop right here and explain something about this rice. You can use any leftover rice that you might have. But sometimes you just don’t have any rice in the fridge, so I used a package of Uncle Ben’s microwavable rice. Um.. brilliant time saver. Just toss the rice right in with the ground beef mixture and you’re done.

More flavor options for these Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers:

  • Use ground turkey in place of ground beef
  • Any flavor or variety of steak sauce will work here
  • Add some diced green chiles and salsa (in place of the steak sauce) for a Mexican twist
  • Switch out the cooked rice for other grains like quinoa, couscous or orzo pasta

Stuff the peppers with the meat and rice mixture, then let them go in the slow cooker.

Right before serving top with some shredded cheese and cover. The cheese will melt in seconds and then they are ready to enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 5 large bell peppers (you can use a mix of red, yellow and orange too)
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef (ground turkey works well too)
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 tbsp A1 steak sauce
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 cup cooked brown and wild rice mix (any type of cooked rice will work)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese

Instructions

  1. Cut the tops of the peppers off and discard the seeds and stems, but save the pepper portion of the tops and dice. Reserve 1/2 cup for the filling.
  2. Combine the diced peppers, ground beef, onion, steak sauce, tomato sauce and rice in a large bowl and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stuff each pepper with the ground beef mixture and place in the crock pot.
  3. Pour about 1/4 cup of water into the bottom of the crock pot and cover. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or HIGH for 4 hours. Just before serving top with the shredded cheese and cover until melted. Enjoy!

Notes

The bottom of the slow cooker will have quite a bit of water after cooking from the peppers releasing their water. Use a slotted spoon to pick up the peppers and let drain before plating.

    I know this is for slow cooker and I planned to make it in my crockpot. But today time is getting to me. Do you have the recipe or just the time and temp to make this in the oven even? Thank you!
    1. Hi Ashley, you can definitely cook these in the oven. I would start at 375 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, covered with foil. Check internal temperature for a temperature of at least 140 degrees. Remove foil and cover with cheese. :)

    Can it stay in the crockpot on warm for about 3 hr after it does the 8 hr cook? I'm asking because I work a 10hr shift. Also can you prefer make them the night before and place them in the fridge until cooking the next morning?
    1. Hi Ashlee, You can definitely prep them the night before and place them in the crock pot in the morning. Cook them on low for the 8 hours and then let it switch over to warm and you should be good. :) Enjoy!

    I work a 10 hr shift everyday. Was planning on making these so just have a few questions. 1 . Can I prepare them the night before and place them in the crackpot the next morning? 2. Also since I work a 10 to 11 hour shift if I have them on the 8 hr setting my crockpot already goes to warm...will they be okay in the crockpot on warm for about 3hr until I get home?

    Tried this and was really good! All I changed was added cheese to the mixture as well as on top because we love our cheese. Will definitely make again! As a side note, at the four hour mark the peppers were perfect. I cooked an additional hour because I had a visitor and in that time frame I made the peppers a bit soggy. So make sure to watch it when close!! Thanks for the recipe!

    Can you please confirm that the ground beef is not cooked before stuffing the peppers? It gets mixed with the other ingredients raw? Thank you!
    1. Trista
      I'd like to know too! Just threw in the crock pot and I browned the beef with peppers and onions before throwing in with the rest of ingredients and stuffing the peppers. Hoping this was right and they turn out good!
