So would you believe me if I told you this Stuffed Pepper Soup is 2 Smartpoints for a cup? I didn’t believe it and put the ingredients in the recipe builder over and over and over again until I had to accept it.
I can’t tell you how many times this recipe has saved my Weight Watcher life! With the fiber from the Bulgar and the protein from the meat it is very, very satisfying! I’m including directions for both the Instant Pot and the stove top, but if you have a pressure cooker it is so much more flavorful made that way!
Makes 13 1 Cup servings
1 lb 93% Ground Beef
28 ounce can diced tomatoes (use petite if you like smaller chunks)
1 small onion, chopped
3 Green Peppers
1 Red Pepper
4 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup Bulgar Wheat
1 tablespoon Wildtree Ranchers Steak Rub (Montreal Steak Seasoning is a good sub)
Salt and Pepper to taste (I use Wildtree’s California Garlic and Pepper blend to cut down on the sodium)
Method of Preparation:
Turn pressure cooker on saute mode, and once it reaches “HOT” status add your ground beef and onions. Season with steak seasoning. Saute until beef is cooked through. Remove from Instant Pot and add olive oil. Put in your peppers, season to taste with salt and pepper or your choice of seasoning, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Put everything back in the pool. Add broth, tomatoes, and Bulgar and give it a good stir.
Lock on lid and cook on manual high pressure for 7 minutes. Let naturally release for 10, then release the rest of the steam.
On the Stove Top:
In a large skillet heat until hot and add your ground beef and onions. Season with steak seasoning. Saute until beef is cooked through. Remove from skillet and add olive oil. Heat oil and put in your peppers, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper or your choice of seasoning. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a stock pot add all ingredient together, giving it a good stir. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat to a simmer. Cook for at least 40 minutes to up to an hour, stirring occasionally.
I use Wildtree products in a lot of my recipes, but I always try to give a substitute. If you’d like to check out Wildtree, you can visit my site HERE.
