Everything you love about a stuffed pepper in an easy slow cooker soup!
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 pound lean ground beef or sirloin
3 green peppers, diced
4 cups beef broth
2 cups chicken broth
28 ounce can petite diced tomatoes
3- 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
1 cup brown rice (NOT INSTANT)- HIGHLY recommend Uncle Ben's Brown Rice for this recipe.
3 teaspoons basil
3 teaspoons oregano
Salt & Pepper to taste
In a skillet, add your olive oil and saute your garlic for one minute.
Add your ground beef to the skillet and season well with pepper and salt.
Once cooked, drain your ground beef & garlic mixture, and add this to your slow cooker.
Next add your diced green peppers, beef broth, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, seasoning, and brown rice. Give it all a stir.
Set your slow cooker to LOW for 4-6 hours.
Serve with crusty bread.
Side note- if your slow cooker sets itself to WARM after it is done cooking, you only need to cook this for four hours. If your slow cooker does not set itself to WARM, it will need to cook for six hours.
