Do you love ground beef stuffed green peppers known in German as gefüllte grüne Paprikaschoten mit Hackfleisch? Well, here's an easy version for it's unstuffed cousin: (Un)Stuffed green pepper soup, aka gefüllte grüne Paprikaschoten Suppe. 

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 meat sauce by using a bit less broth. Such a versatile soup that tastes so delicious and freezes beautifully as well.

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

I was looking for a vegetable beef soup recipe that used green peppers. I knew I loved stuffed green peppers, so this recipe has become a great alternative to making a similar taste in an easier way.

Now then, how German are stuffed peppers? I used to think this was totally an American dish. But I've since found it in German cookbooks. It doesn't appear to be traditional as far as from way back in the day.

However, culinary trends change, and since green peppers (and their colored cousins) were introduced to Europe a couple of hundred years ago, they are also commonly used in German cooking since. 

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 meat sauce. Delicious served over noodles.

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 meat sauce over noodles or pasta (if you're planning an Italian meal).

Is this (un)stuffed green pepper soup ... German? Well, it may not be traditional from way back, but it's certainly served in Germany today.

Why? Because it's so good.

Try it and you'll see what I mean!
