Ardei umpluti - reteta mea! / Stuffed peppers - my recipe!

 Zilele acestea m-am gandit sa gatesc un fel de mancare pe care nu il fac prea des. Ardeii umpluti eu ii stiu ca ciorba. Sotul meu nu ii poate asocia cu ciorba ci decat cu sosul pentru ca soacra mea asa ii face.
Eu i-am fiert alaturi de niste morcovi si cu suc de rosii. Asa ca e propria mea reteta - nici a mamei, nici a soacrei.

Ingrediente
- 500 g carne
- 14 ardei mici sau mijlocii
- 1 ardei gras rosu
- 1 ceapa
- 1 rosie
- 200 g orez
- 2 oua
- 2 linguri de ulei
- cimbru
- piper
- patrunjel
- 300 ml suc de rosii
- 4 morcovi
- 250 ml apa.

Se spala si se curata ardeii. Fiecare ardei se va taia la fund pentru a impiedica umplutura sa iasa.
Vom spala si curata ardeiul rosu, rosia si ceapa. Se taie marunt si se pun impreuna cu orezul, carnea si condimentele intr-o craticioara. Se adauga uleiul si se calesc 4-5 minute dupa care se trag de pe foc.
Se adauga orezul si patrunjelul si se lasa la racit. Apoi se pun cele doua oua si se amesteca.
Se vor umple ardeii pe care ii punem intr-un vas termorezistent.
Morcovii se vor curata si spala dupa care se dau pe razatoarea mica. Se pun in vasul termorezistent dupa care adaugam sucul de rosii si 250 ml de apa.
Vasul se pune in cuptor. Eu l-am tinut cam o ora la foc mediu timp in care am mai pus cca 100 ml de apa deoarece scazuse.

These days I cooked a dish that I usually  don't cook even if is so popular in Romania. I'm associating stuffed pepper with soup. My husband can't associate them with soup but with sauce because his mother cooks this dish this way. 
I boiled the pepper with some carrots and tomato juice. My own recipe - not my mom's, not my mother in law's.

Ingredients
- 500 g of minced meat
- 14 little or medium bell peppers
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 onion
- 1 tomato
- 200 g of rice
- 2 eggs
- 2 spoons of sunflower oil
- savory
- parsley
- 300 ml of tomato juice
- 4 carrots

We wash and we take the seeds out of the pepper. Each pepper will have a little hole in it (to prevent the spreading of the composition).
We will wash the red bell pepper, the tomato and the onion and we cut them finely. We will put them into a pan with the meat, the condiments and the oil. We temper for 4-5 minutes and after this we'll take the pan from the oven.
We add the rice and the parsley and we let composition to cool off. We will add the eggs and we mix the composition with a spoon. 
The peppers will be stuffed with the composition and put into a thermo resistant recipient.
The carrots will be washed and peeled off. They will be finely shredded and put into the recipient. We will add the tomato juice and 250 ml of water.
The recipient is put into the oven. I kept it there for about an hour at medium temperature. In this time I had to add 100 ml of water.





Am servit ardeii cu smantana. Au fost foarte buni. Nu stiu cand voi mai face. Inca avem acel "conflict" de gusturi care se rezolva numai printr-o lunga abstinenta! :))


We served the stuffed peppers with fresh cream. I don't know when I'll cook again this recipe because we still have that "conflict" of tastes which can be resolved only through a long abstinence! :))
