Stuffed Green Pepper Soup
2 lbs. ground beef
1 green pepper, chopped
1 (29oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (29oz.) can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
2 cubes of beef bouillon
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 T. soy sauce (or Braggs Liquid Aminos)
2 c. cooked rice (I use brown)
Brown beef. Drain fat. Add green pepper and saute 3 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, tomatoes (include juice), bouillon cubes, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and soy sauce. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 30 - 45 minutes. Stir in rice and heat through. Soup will be thick like a stew and tastes better the longer it simmers.
Serves 4 -5 adults (Our family finishes this in one sitting if we do not have bread or something on the side).
Tank trudging in from the snow to get a cup of hot chocolate! We did end up with more snow than this.
It doesn't look like much snow in this picture but this is our overhang of snow before they knocked it down this morning.
