Crockpot Stuffed Green Peppers

Here is a great way to make Stuffed Green Peppers using your crockpot!

If you love green peppers then you need to try this recipe for Crockpot Stuffed Green Peppers! You can put everything in the crockpot in the morning, let it cook on low all day and come home to a complete dinner that is ready to go.  Growing up my Mom made these in the oven so this twist on the traditional recipe is one that I love.  Being able to prep dinner quickly is so important because I am so busy.

This meal was so easy to prepare and I had on the ingredients in my fridge and pantry. My husband and I loved the stuffed green peppers, my boys not so much. But I am sure as they get older they will!  As I recall, I wasn’t a huge fan of them when I was a child either.  Now, I love them!

Crockpot Green Stuffed Peppers are amazing! So simple to cook in your crockpot!

To prepare simply cut the top off and remove seeds from green peppers, wash and set aside.  Combine the ground beef, oatmeal, uncooked rice, onion, carrot, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Stuff each pepper about 2/3 full (rice will need room to swell up). Stand the peppers side-by-side in the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour water in crockpot (not over the green peppers).

Finally, pour the tomato sauce evenly over the peppers.  Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.  When you are ready to serve, if desired sprinkle cheese over the tops, place lid on crockpot and wait five minutes for cheese to melt.  I think it makes the perfect stuffed green pepper!

  1. Hi! I’ve never had stuffed green peppers and am looking forward to trying this recipe. I only need to feed myself and one other person; to fill two peppers would you just divide filling ingredients in half? Thanks!

    1. I’d use only a third if you’re going to make only 2 peppers. Or you can always make the whole recipe, fill 2-3 peppers and freeze the rest of the meat for later use.

    I followed the directions, actually left the peppers in the slow cooker for over 8 hours since I got off work late. I substituted ground turkey since we don’t keep beef I. The house. The meat was cooked, but the rice never cooked. Where do you think I went wrong? I assume it was bc there was no water inside the bell peppers to cook the rice. Thoughts?

      1. probably because there is not a lot of grease in the turkey – I would make the rice as Stephanie suggested

    I have tried this and overall love it. I usually precook rice but didn’t this time and must say I like them precooked better. I also only used 3/4 cup of rice instead of full cup and that was still to much. I didn’t have tomato sauce so I used one of the big cans of tomato puree and I added more water, maybe another half to 3/4 can. It turned great.

  4. I was disappointed in the stuffed peppers. My rice did not cook at all. You should specify that the rice should be cooked.

  5. I used instant white rice and it turned out just fine. But if you’re still worried about how the rice will turn out, precook it.

    I tried your recipe out today. I used to love stuffed peppers when my mom made them ! They turned out good. I also used the juice in the crockpot and mixed it up with some tomato past and spices to make a creamy sauce and served them with some goat cheese. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    This was an awesome receipe. Only I used breadcrumbs instead of oatmeal cause I had none. Came out perfect and such an easy clean up. My husband said this was a keeper! Thank you♡♡♡

  8. I made these ahead of time last night and put them in the crockpot this morning, for when we get home from work tonight! I used a pound of ground venison (hubs is a hunter and got a huge buck last season so we haven’t bought meat all year). A full large chopped onion was WAY too much for my tastes, so I only used about 1/4 cup of chopped onion. The filling made the perfect amount for me to stuff FOUR peppers, not the six as directed. I also added some garlic powder in addition to salt & pepper. Can’t wait to get home and see how everything turns out! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Trying this tonight with ground turkey!
    Didn’t precook the rice so hoping it will still turn out though.
    Thanks!

    These were really good, but 1 lb. of beef was not enough. Maybe I just had unusually large green peppers? Next time I’ll double the beef and rice.
