Fried rice is a staple dish in many parts of the world, and it’s super-easy to make. I’m gonna share my secret recipe with ya’ll – trust me on this one, it’s lip-smackin’ delicious! First things first, you’ll need some long grain white rice. Cook your rice until it’s nice ‘n fluffy, then set it aside to cool down. Next, grab an onion and a clove of garlic, and mince ’em up – chop ’em until you get that consistency you want. Place a nice heavy skillet on the stove, heat it up with some oil (I prefer sesame oil) and toss in the onions. Stir up the onions until they get fragrant, ‘n when you’re done chuck in the rest of your vegetables: carrots, peas, mushrooms – whatever you like! Once everything’s in there, stir it all together and let it simmer for a few minutes. When the veggies are almost done, add the cooled rice and a few tablespoons of soy sauce. Mix the whole thing together, fry it on medium heat until it gets golden, and voila – you’ve got yourself a delicious fried rice meal.
Looking to spice up your dinner routine? Why not try stuffed peppers!? They’ve long been a favorite in my family, and now I’m passing the recipe on to you! Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned chef, these stuffed peppers are easy to whip up. Serve them as a main dish or as an appetizer – they delish either way.
As far as prepping goes, you’ll need some bell peppers (go for the red, yellow, and/or orange ones if you can!), ground beef, onion, garlic, tomato sauce, rice, and a few spices. If you want things to be extra tasty, you can also add in some shredded cheese, olives, and spices like cumin, oregano, and chili powder.
To get started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prep all of your filling ingredients. Brown your ground beef, and add the seasoning, onions, and garlic. Cook until the onions have softened. Once the meat is cooked through, stir in the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for about 10 minutes – this will help to develop all the flavors. You should end up with a thick and chunky filling.
Now it’s time to stuff the peppers: cut them in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and membranes, and fill each one with your tasty filling. Place the stuffed peppers in a greased baking dish and top with a bit of tomato sauce. Cover the dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the peppers are fork-tender and the filling is bubbly. And there ya have it, the best darn stuffed peppers ever! Enjoy!
