Oma's (Un) Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

(un) Stuffed Green Pepper Soup. So easy to make it just like Oma!

Stuffed green pepper soup, aka grüne Pfeffersuppe? If you LOVE stuffed peppers, you'll LOVE this soup.  Lean ground beef, peppers (green, red, yellow, orange), tomatoes. Served with rice. All the taste, but minus the work.

Not only is this a soup, but it can easily be used as a pasta sauce by using a bit less broth. Such a versatile soup that tastes so good and freezes beautifully as well.

Serve this as a soup with rice on top. Stir the rice in. OR, serve as a sauce with pasta. Yummy!

I was looking for a vegetable beef soup recipe that used green peppers. Didn't find what I wanted in my German cookbooks. I knew I loved stuffed green peppers, so this recipe has become a great alternative to making a similar taste in an easier way.

Grab your copy of Oma's favorite soups collection in Quick Fix German Soups e-Cookbook. You'll LOVE it!

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • I've used a mixture of lean ground beef, lean ground pork, and/or lean ground chicken. All work fantastic.
  • Add more or less of the veggies. Add chopped celery. Add sliced mushrooms. You decide how creative you want to be!
  • Use it just the way it is as a spaghetti meat sauce. Delicious served over spaghetti.

Oma says,

If you're looking for green pepper recipes because you have an abundance in the garden, then make this soup and freeze it for use in the winter.

If you're looking for the best ground beef recipes, well this should certainly be one of them. So versatile, since it can be used as a pasta sauce. 

Is this (un)stuffed green pepper soup ... German. Nope. So, it's among my Non German favorites! 

Why? Because it's so good.

Try it and you'll see what I mean!
