    I am looking for a Stuffed Pepper recipe from Transylvania. My grandparents are from a little town in that region & I grew up eating Stuffed Peppers. Is this recipe similar? I have had tried other recipes from other regions but they haven’t tasted the same. I have my uncles recipe but part of it I can’t read. I look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Marla, This is the recipe of stuffed peppers I cook https://zserbo.com/meat-dishes/stuffed-peppers-in-tomato-juice/ . However it’s not from Transylvania. Give me a few days and I’ll check if I can provide a traditional Transylvanian recipe for you.

          Well, I have found a Transylvanian stuffed pepper recipe, but I’m not sure you have thought of that.
          Here it is:

          For the stuffing: 400 g ground meat (50-50% pork and beef), 100 g rice (rinsed), 1 small onion, 1 tbsp lard, 2-3 tsbp cold water, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper

          Heat the lard and sauté the finely chopped onions until translucent. Place meat in a bowl, add onions, rice, water, salt and pepper, and mix them thoroguhly.

          Further ingredients: 8 medium wax peppers, 2 tbsp lard, 2 tbsp flour, 1 litre tomato sauce, 1medium carrot, salt, ground paprika, summer savory, sugar, sour cream.

          Core and seed the peppers, then fill them with the stuffing. Heat 1 tbsp of lard in a pot and quickly fry the peppers on each side. Pour in hot water, just enough to cover the pepppers. Add salt to taste, 1 tsp of summer savory and the grated carrot. Slowly simmer. Meanwhile heat lard in a sauce pan, add flour and 1-2 tsp of paprika and make a blonde roux. Pour in tomato sauce and cook for 15 minutes. When the stuffed peppers are done,pour in the tomato sauce, add sugar to taste and cook for further 5-10 minutes. Serve with sour cream.

          I hope it’s similar to your family recipe.
