Add the bell peppers to a slow cooker.

Serve & Enjoy
It’s important to use lean ground beef as you don’t want too much fat in the slow cooker. If you can’t get your hands on some lean ground beef, then brown and drain it before mixing with the other ingredients.
Using uncooked rice in the beef mixture may lead to the rice not cooking correctly. Uncooked rice will be hard and not appetising at all.
When you pour in the beef stock or marinara sauce, make sure you don’t get any inside the bell peppers. It can make them get very sloppy.
