Romanian Stuffed Peppers (Ardei Umpluti)
Originating in Romania and enjoyed all across the Mediterranean and Middle East, these Romanian Stuffed Peppers (Ardei Umpluti) are, in one word, unbelievable.
Preferably use medium, colorful peppers to stuff with ground pork, uncooked rice, chopped onion, some egg, fresh dill, fresh parsley, salt and pepper. Over a low heat, cook the stuffed peppers in a sour cream and tomato puree sauce. I love it when a delicious dish is simple to make and sometimes, less is more. These are so much more!
