Step 1

Cut the tops off the green peppers, core, and remove seeds, rinse out. Combine ground beef, rice, egg, 1/2 cup of the crushed tomatoes, onion, and seasonings. Fill the peppers with the meat mixture.

To the pressure cooker, add 1/2 cup water and remaining crushed tomatoes.

Place stuffed peppers in the pressure cooker. Place lid on Pressure Cooker (make sure it is set on seal, not vent). Set pressure on 12 minutes high. (Follow your pressure cookers directions.)

Let pressure down for for five minutes before venting. (Be careful when venting.)

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 bottom of the cooker and they turned out fine.
