I haven't made stuffed peppers in years, but when I have, I always used everything raw. Put in baking dish and bake 350 for 1 1/2 - 2 hours in sauce . My mom did it this way too! Mom used tomato soup w/1/2 can water, made the best gravy over mashed potatoes. Now I gotta make some - droolin' lol !

My mother never used rice in hers and I don't either. I usually use a really good pork sausage. I parboil the peppers (halved longwise) and saute the onions and celery. I then put it all together with an egg and a few bread crumbs just to combine. By using the pork sausage I don't worry about more seasoning. Also it doesn't take as long to cook sliced in half since the meat mixture isn't as deep, I like them hot or left over cold. DH adds a bit of chili sauce to his.

I never cook my ground round or rice when making stuffed peppers or cabbage. Mix the ground round with the uncooked rice, one egg, and seasonings and stuff peppers. If I run out of peppers I make meatballs and than layer everything in a large dutch oven, add a can of V8 juice, diced tomatoes, a couple tablespoons of tomato paste, some more seasonings and cook slowly for about an hour or until the meatballs are cooked through.

I always cook the ingredients together for about 5 minutes or til the meat is browned, then drain the skillet and fill the peppers. You don't have so much grease floating in the peppers that way. BTW, if you want a fabulous presentation, try using a combination of red, yellow and green peppers. It really makes a beautiful dish.

I never precook anything when making my peppers. I use ground round, raw rice, grated onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and an egg. I stuff the raw peppers and top with tomato soup and water. I used to cook on the stove, but now make them in my slow cooker. That way, there's no scorching and the peppers keep their shapes.

You could sub tomato soup, SurvivorGirl, but tomato soup is a bit sweeter than tomato sauces, etc.
