Stuffed pepper in a slow cooker

The slow cooker is an indispensable assistant in the kitchen. Especially its benefit is noticeable when the dish is being cooked for a long time, since all this time the hostess does not need to check the water level and worry that the dish will burn. The main thing is to choose the right program and set the right time. For example, even an inexperienced cook will be able to cook stuffed peppers in a slow cooker, while the dish will almost certainly be tasty, satisfying and beautiful.

Cooking Features

Stuffed peppers are cooked in many families, and for experienced cooks, the process of cooking this dish seems simple. However, inexperienced housewives may have questions and doubts. To make the dish tasty, you need to know a few secrets.

  • If you are going to extinguish the stuffed pepper as a whole, give preference to medium-sized fruits, and large samples are suitable for baking. And in fact, and in another case, dishes from peppers of bright color look more appetizing.
  • Choose hard vegetables for cooking with minced meat, without damage. Try to make them not significantly different in size, since otherwise time for cooking large peppers will take more than small ones, and this is inconvenient, especially when cooking dishes in a slow cooker.
  • Home-made minced meat will almost certainly be more tasty than purchased. If you do not have the opportunity to make it at home, carefully examine the packaging with the store product to make sure that it is fresh and belongs to a high category. You can also ask the seller to make mincemeat straight from the meat pieces you like, if, of course, this service is provided in your store.
  • Rice before stuffing peppers with them, it is necessary to boil until half cooked in salted water, otherwise it will remain too hard in the filling, and the taste of the whole dish will be irreparably damaged.

Do not forget that in a multicooker you can not only extinguish the peppers, but also bake them like in the oven.
