Because today’s prize is a Le Creuset 3 1/2 quart braiser ($240 value),  I decided to share a recipe made in an enameled cast iron pot.  I own two such Dutch ovens and they are by far my favorite cookware.  My husband calls them the “Magic Pots” because everything made in them is so incredibly delicious.  You have never had roast until it has been made in enameled cast iron.  Seriously.Bell Pepper Beef StewAs the beef, onions and bell peppers cook, they melt into one another.  My husband said it reminded him of Chinese food because of the peppers.  I personally think my husband is a little nuts.   I served the family’s portions over spaghetti noodles.  I ate mine over some leftover French fries.  I think in a normal house, this would be great over rice or boiled potatoes, but my house is anything but normal.Bell Pepper Beef Stew

  1. We like our Bell Peppers skillet fried in lots of olive oil, thinly sliced onions, and a heaping tsp of dried basil and oregano…. Quick and simple…

  2. Well, one is cooked white rice, cooled and add 3 color peppers in dot size blanched, cooled and simmered in seasoned rice vinegar and olive oil for half an hour, season to taste and top with fresh shredded romano/asiago cheese. enjoy Gabriela

  3. I love red and yellow peppers and all of these recipes are fabulous. My daughter is gluten intolerant and the pumpkin stuffed peppers made gluten free are a great dish for her

    1. Hi Mary,
      I don’t include nutrition analysis for my recipes for liability reasons. I make no claims about my recipes, except that my family thinks they taste good. I am sure there are tools or apps available online for you to plug in the ingredients.
