Green Pepper Soup ingredients

Instructions:

  1. Brown beef 
  2. Drain any grease from beef
  3. In slow cooker add beef, cooked rice, onion, tomatoes, green peppers and seasonings including garlic. 
  4. Stir together
  5. Add tomato sauce and beef broth
  6. Cook on low for 2 to 4 hours depends on how tender you like your peppers. (I prefer crunchy peppers I cooked for 2 hours)

Note: If you cook the rice and beef the cook time is allow the seasonings and vegetables time to get tender.  

However my sister said, when she is pressed for time she put everything in the slow cooker raw but the green peppers. This requires longer cook time 8 hours but it is a true slow cook meal.  She adds the green pepper in the end, she is like me we prefer crunchy green peppers in the soup.
