This stuffed pepper recipe is both Keto and Ideal Protein Diet friendly! Keto Diets allow cheese, whereas the Ideal Protein Phase 1 diet does not. You can modify this low carb stuffed pepper recipe to your liking or diet, but this recipe is by far the quickest way to have a healthy meal on the table in minutes!
2 lbs Ground Beef, Lean
1 tbsp Cumin
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Hot Sauce
1 tbsp Minced Garlic
1 tbsp Minced Onion
Core Peppers, rinse and add to 5-6 qt pot.
Fill pot with water just enough to cover the peppers and heat on stove until boiling and peppers become soft. Pepper will turn color when soft (approx 10-15 minute). Once they are soft, pour into a strainer so you don’t burn your fingers! You can see the steam in my picture below.
While peppers are cooking, in a large skillet, heat the ground beef until browned and drain.
Add skillet back to heat, add the minced garlic and minced onion.
In small mixing bowl, add olive oil, hot sauce and cumin.
Add mixture to ground beef and mix throughout the beef. Heat for 5 minutes to get spices cooked in.
Scoop the beef mixture into the boiled peppers
Drizzle Walden Farms Calorie Free Ranch or Walden Farms Blue Cheese Dressing to give these Keto Stuffed peppers the perfect finishing taste! (If following diet, serving size is 2 tbsp, so if eating 2 peppers, use 1 tbsp per pepper)
Drizzle additional hot sauce (optional)
Serve with Lettuce and Cucumber salad for a low calorie meal
If following Ideal Protein Phase 1 diet, you are allowed 6-8 oz protein for 1 meal per day. Add 3-4 oz beef to each pepper to meet your protein allowance for the day.
With this awesome digital scale, you can place your plate and pepper on scale first, then hit zero on the scale, and then add your meat to your low carb stuffed pepper (leave pepper on scale) to measure exactly the amount of ounces of protein you want.
