Ingredients ( 2)

  • 3 green bell peppers
  • 3 red bell peppers
    Note

    *If unavailable, use green bell peppers.

  • 150 g ground pork
  • 1/4 onion (40 g)
  • [A]

    • 100 g cooked rice
      Note

      *It doesn't matter whether it's hot or cold.

    • 2 tbsp ketchup
    • 1 tsp salt
  • Flour, as needed
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Preparation

1

Using the tip of your blade, make an incision 5 mm around the stems of the bell peppers.

2

Gently press open with your fingers to pull out the seeds along with the stems.

3

Sprinkle a pinch of flour inside each pepper. Lightly shake to dust the insides. Turn over so that the mouth is facing downwards and dust away the excess.

Directions

1

Mince the onion. Combine the ground pork, onions and [A] in a bowl and knead thoroughly.

Advice

Ketchup and other seasonings are added to the stuffing at this point. No extra seasonings are required after grilling.

2

Stuff the bell peppers.

Advice

Form into loose balls to stuff. The rice makes it easy to handle.

3

Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan placed over medium heat. Lay the stuffed peppers and fry for 6-7 minutes, turning over every now and then. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Steam-fry for around 10 minutes. Cut any way you like and plate up.
