Ingredients

Preparation

  • Char peppers over a gas flame or under a hot broiler, turning to blacken all over. Once removed from heat place in a paper bag, close tightly and steam for 15 minutes. When cool enough to handle, rub off and remove blackened skin, taking care not to tear flesh. Cut the tops off of each pepper and remove the ribs and seeds from inside and discard.
  • While the peppers cool heat 2 tbsp. oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft and golden, about 20 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high, add beef and pork, breaking meat up with the back of a spoon, and brown for 7 - 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in tomatoes and nutmeg. Cook for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and stir in rice, marjoram, thyme, parsley, and 1 tbsp. oil. Adjust seasoning, if needed.
  • Preheat broiler. Spoon about 1/4 cup filling into each pepper and place on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, drizzle with remaining oil, and broil until golden. Serve hot or at room temperature.
