Keto Hungarian Stuffed Peppers

Almost every culture has a form of stuffed peppers. The Hungarian version is made with wax peppers, and the filling can vary. This recipe is made with ground beef, strongly seasoned with paprika, cabbage, and cauliflower rice (instead of traditional white rice). While this Keto recipe may stray from traditional Hungarian cuisine, it makes for a delicious lunch or dinner!

    Tasty and nice quick prep. I love salt but found it a little salty, next time I'll reduce it a bit. The rest of the spices were right on. I also substituted cabbage with fresh spinach, just a preference. All and all a solid recipe.

      Delish I cut off bottom of peppers slightly to help them stand up Then steamed lightly before cooking in oven to reduce cooking time and garentee tenderness
