Stuffed Pepper Crockpot Soup

When on a trip to Florida last year, I ate in a deli where I tried their “Stuffed Pepper Soup.” It was delicious and did taste just like I remembered stuffed peppers tasting which I loved growing up. I decided to try to replicate it in a recipe that could be done entirely in the crockpot. Now I have a crockpot with a removeable crock so I brown the ground beef and onions in the microwave, toss the rest of the ingredients in (except for the rice) and stick it in the refrigerator overnight so all I have to do is place the crock in the pot, stir in the rice, turn the crockpot to the low setting and let it cook all day while I’m at work. I served it with Trader Joe’s cornbread and a salad. If you like stuffed peppers give this a try . . . you’ll really like it!

Ingredients
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
2 green peppers, diced
15 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 1/2 C. V-8 juice or tomato juice
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
15 oz. can beef broth
2 heaping T. packed brown sugar
1 1/2 t. worcestershire sauce
2 C. water
1/2 C. rice

Place the ground beef and chopped onions in the crock and brown in microwave in 2 minute increments, stirring after each 2 minutes, cooking until the meat is browned and onions translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients, EXCEPT the rice, and stir to combine. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, place the crock in the pot, turn to low, stir in the rice and let cook all day. Stir well before serving and add water if too thick.
