Stuffed Green Bell Peppers

My niece and her boyfriend made this on Valentines Day.  It was so good and I don’t like green peppers.  I guess I do now!

You will need:

Preheat oven to 350

4 green bell peppers, sliced in half, cored and seeded

2 cloves garlic minced

1 small shallot sliced

4 pieces bacon chopped

About 10 slices of good rare roast beef, choppedImage

8 slices provolone cheese

Arrange the bell pepper halves on a baking pan, skin side down so you can fill the “bowl” of the pepper

Saute garlic and shallots on stove until shallots are almost soft

Add bacon to garlic and shallots and cook until bacon is done, not too crispy add the roast beef just for a minute and stir until roast beef is warm but not cooked through

Lay a piece of the provolone on the bottom of each bell pepper, press it in the bowl of the pepper so it forms to the pepper

Fill the peppers with the mixture from the pan

Lay another piece of provolone on top of the filling

Put it in the oven just until the cheese melts

This was so good.  The pepper isn’t soft, it is still crispy and tastes a bit sharp.  The cheese balances the sharpness of the pepper and it is delicious!
