Paleo Stuffed Bell Pepper Step-by-Step Cooking Directions
Begin by washing the bell peppers and onion. On a clean cutting board, vertically slice each bell pepper with your chef’s knife. Then remove the stems, seeds, and interior membrane with your fingers. Set your bell pepper halves aside. Prepare the onion by chopping into a fine dice, and placing in your mixing bowl.
Preheat your oven to 300º. In your mixing bowl, combine the small diced onion, 16oz raw ground turkey or beef, 3Tbsp tomato paste, and 2tsp of salt, black pepper, granulated garlic, dried oregano, and dried parsley. Put on your food-safe nitrile gloves, and fully incorporate these filling ingredients by folding and mixing them into each other with your hands.
Segment the filling into 4 equal portions, rolling each into a meatball. Place 1 meatball inside each bell pepper half to create the stuffed bell peppers. Then place the stuffed peppers on your baking sheet. Remove and dispose of the nitrile gloves, wash your hands, and clean any surfaces that came in contact with the raw meat. Bake the stuffed bell peppers for 20 minutes, check and turn, and then another 20 minutes. The stuffed peppers are fully cooked when the interior temperature reaches 165º.
With oven mitts, place the baking sheet on a trivet. Using your tongs, you may plate the stuffed bell peppers, and serve. To elevate the dish, you can heat ⅓C homemade marinara sauce, and pour overtop.
