Although the name is not suggesting this, stuffed peppers is actually a soup, which is so commonly made in Transylvania that you must have at least once a week. Or twice if you really like it.
4-5 small (california) peppers
250 grē minced pork
100 grē rice
0.5 l tomato juice
green parsley (fresh)
salt, pepper, oil, flour
The preparation is very simple, so letís start with the small peppers (color does not matter, pick the one you really like) and the 250 grams of minced pork meat. Mix the pork meat with 100 grams of rice, some salt, some pepper and some water till it becomes soft enough. Now clean the peppers and stuff the meat/rice mixture into it. Donít over stuff, as it will grow during cooking and might break the pepper.
Put to boil circa 2 liters of water, and put the stuffed peppers in it, and also add a bunch of green parsley. Now cook it for 40 Ė 50 minutes till the peppers and the meat inside are cooked, meanwhile prepare some roux (put a spoon of oil and mix well with 1 spoon of flour till golden brown).
When the peppers are cooked mix the (already) cold roux with a few spoons of hot water from the soup, and add it to the soup. After this add 0.5 liters of Tomato juice and let it cook for another 30 minutes.
