Step 1

Cut the tops off the green peppers, core, and remove seeds, rinse out.

Combine meat, rice, egg, 1/2 cup of the crushed tomatoes, onion, and seasonings.

Fill the peppers with the meat mixture.

Add 1/2 cup water and remaining crushed tomatoes.

Place peppers in the Pressure Cooker.

Place lid on Pressure Cooker making sure it is set on seal, not vent. Set pressure on HIGH and cook for 12 minutes following your pressure cookers directions.

Let pressure down for 5 minutes before venting, be careful when venting, steam is very hot.

It was recommended to use the rack for stuffed peppers, but my peppers were too big to use with the rack, so I just placed them on the bottom of the cooker and they turned out fine.
