4-6 large (stout) green bell peppers
1 pound hamburger
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce

  2. Add olive oil to frying pan - brown garlic. Cook hamburger in frying pan. When cooked, drain it. Let it cool a little. Then crumble until meat is a fine texture.
  3. Cover peppers in cold water in large saucepan. (Mom uses her spaghetti pot with the colander built right in). Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to medium and cook for 5 minutes. Peppers should be cooked but not soft.
  4. Cook rice according to directions. (1 1/2 cups water for 1/2 cup rice)
