 Cut the tops off 8 green peppers and remove the seeds.
 Mix a pound of lean minced beef (Hamburger) with a heaping 1/4 cup of 
 rice. Add a clove of garlic chopped, a medium onion chopped and salt and 
 pepper and blend well. Pack this mixture into each pepper to fill 2/3ds 
 and replace the tops. Fit upright in a large saucepan. 
 To cover you will need about 2 cups of tomato juice to which add about 4 
 tbsp vinegar (wine preferred) along with 3 tbsp of sugar. A little 
 chicken stock (about 1 tbsp powdered) would be nice if you have it. Add 
 enough water to this to just cover the peppersif you are short.
 Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about an hour until the 
 peppers are tender and about 2/3ds of the liquid is absorbed.

 You can sub brown sugar or honey for the sweetener...add garlic to the 
 juice if you're a fanatic. You can also puree a can of tomatoes and add 
 tomato juice to bring you up to quantity if you like a stronger tomato 
 note. Adjust the rice to meat mixture to if you like. Hey...This is a 
 recipe I have made often and can vouch for. If you like it sweeter or 
 less meaty that's up to you. The quantities work for me. Obvously the 
 size of the peppers will have something to do with the required amount 
 of filling.

 This recipe is of Balkan origin and is served both hot and cold as a 
 first or main course. As I am here in Ottawa, you may call if you get 
 into trouble.
