Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Instructions

  1. Soak dried shrimps in water for about 10 minutes. Drain. Devine and finely chop the shelled shrimps. Then mix in the dried shrimps and ground meat. Chop until the whole mixture is fully incorporated. Add in sugar, salt, white pepper and cornstarch and stir vigorously until the mixture is elastic.
  2. Lightly dust the inside of bell pepper wedges with cornstarch. Fill each pepper wedge with the mixture, mounding slightly. Pat the top with a bit cornstarch.
  3. Heat up a skillet with some oil. Place the stuffed pepper wedges, filling upside down, in the skillet and pan-fry for about 3-5 minutes. Gently shovel the bell peppers to the sides. Leave half tablespoon of oil to stir-fry ginger, garlic and black beans until fragrant. Pour in water, season with salt and sugar and cover to simmer for 5-8 minutes. Arrange the peppers on a serving dish and thicken the sauce with the starchy solution. Spoon over the stuffed bell peppers and serve.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • You can choose lean ground beef or switch to ground turkey or ground bison if you prefer less fatty meat.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

  • The price of ground beef is going up. Beans and lentils, on the other hand, are both cheap and filling. Depending on the recipe, you might be able to add beans or lentils to stretch out your beef.

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

Green Tips

  • Choose organic, grassfed beef whenever possible. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating a few vegetarian meals so you can afford better meat!

  • Beans freeze well, so don't throw out your leftovers!
