Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh and wash rice thoroughly. 

    Place water into TM bowl.  Insert basket with rice and cook for 8 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 4.  Set aside.

    Add onion, garlic, parsley, bacon and carrot into TM bowl and chop for 7 seconds on Speed 4.

    Add oil and sauté for 4 minutes at Varoma on Speed 1.

    Slowly feed the mince through the MC opening while it’s cooking for 10 minutes on Reverse + Speed soft.

    Add the sauce, water and stock and cook for 10 minutes at Varoma on Reverse and Speed soft.  While it is cooking, wash the red capsicums by cutting an opening at the top and remove all seeds.

    In a bowl combine the rice and mince mixture.  Insert the capsicums with the combined mixture and place in an oven proof dish.

    Use any leftover mixture as the sauce.  You can add vegetable stock and/or water or sauce to make it more liquid.  Pour the sauce over the capsicums till it reaches at least half way of the capsicums.

    Bake on the stove top or in an oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes.

Tip

Instead of red capsicums you can use cabbage.  Peel off the cabbage leaves and pour boiling water over the cabbage leaves.  This softens the leaf and therefore you are able to place the mixture on the leaf and roll into a parcel.

Serve this dish with Mashed Potato (Everyday Cookbook) as this combines well with the sauce.

  • Very tasty!  By the time I

    Very tasty!  By the time I mixed the rice with the meat sauce (using only 1 bottle of passata) the mix was quite wet but firmed up in the oven as the rice finished cooking.  The addition of the second bottle of passata to the leftover rice/meat made the sauce a bit too tomato-y for me.  Definitely will cook it again!

    These were delicious! This is my husbands favourite dish so far and is almost as good as his mums tmrc_emoticons.;) I had left over mixture (which I froze) as I didn't put it around the capsicums when I baked it, instead I baked them in a tomato passata. Next time I will bake them longer so the capsicums are softer. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Yum Yum. Delicious we enjoyed

    Submitted by Sarskia on 21. September 2015 - 07:27.

    Yum Yum. Delicious we enjoyed these very much. Maybe next time I would like to add some fresh breadcrumbs, mint (dried or fresh) and some feta. I know it takes it out of the relm of being croatian but I love to experiment with flavours.

    Thanks for sharing these delightful regional dishes.

  • Serve with crusty bread!  I

    Submitted by mummy-mum on 14. August 2015 - 19:36.

    Serve with crusty bread! 

    I did have some concerns reading the recipe as others have also stated. So I wasn't to sure, but went with my gut instinct and this is what I did; 

    Weigh and wash rice thoroughly. 

    Place water into TM bowl.  

    Insert basket with rice and cook for 8 minutes at Varoma temperature on Speed 4.  

    Set rice aside and empty TM bowl.

    Add onion, garlic, parsley, bacon and carrot into TM bowl and chop for 7 seconds on Speed 4.

    Add oil and sauté for 4 minutes at Varoma on Speed 1.

    Slowly feed the mince through the MC opening while it’s cooking for 10 minutes on Reverse, Speed soft.

    Empty TM bowl into a larger bowl, Add 1 tsp paprika, and combine the rice and mince mixture.  

    Into TM bowl, add 1x 750ml passata sauce bottle, 750ml water and veg stock concentrate and cook for 

    10 minutes at Varoma on Reverse and Speed soft.

    ***Note for next time, add extra passata to cover capsicums to make it more saucey when cooking in the oven. I don't think 2x 750ml passata + the water would fit in the TM bowl anyway. I like ALOT of sauce. 

    While it is cooking, wash the red capsicums and cut an opening at the top and remove all seeds.

    Fill capsicums with combined meat & rice mixture and place sideways, in an oven proof baking dish.

    Use any leftover mixture as the sauce.  

    Pour the sauce over the capsicums till it reaches at least half way up the capsicums.

    You can add vegetable stock and/or water or sauce to make it more liquid.  

    Bake on the stove top or in an oven at 180 degrees for 40 minutes.

    Please correct me if I have misinterpreted your beloved Baba’s recipe. This is a beautiful dish! 

    Thanks for sharing.

  • My mother always cooked these

    Submitted by Maida on 3. August 2015 - 19:45.

    My mother always cooked these with raw meat and very slightly cooked rice. I gave these a go today and really loved the recipe. I use one bottle passata in the meat and tomato soup with water mix for the extra sauce. Next time I will add some hot peppers for extra zing. Thanks Sue and Baba Nada too.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by amanda orsum gargula on 2. December 2014 - 12:16.

    Hi Carly having made the recipe several times without a thermomix i know that the sauce is the base in which the capsicum (bell peppers) are cooked in.This recipe asked us to add it to the mince and use any left over to the sauce that they will then be cooking in.Also i would like to add a tip -  that is you must also empty the water from the bowl after steaming the rice. i am in the middile of cooking this recipe for my son who has just come home from hospital so i am hoping that he will love this style.Amanda

  • I was very keen to make this

    Submitted by CarlyC on 22. September 2014 - 14:30.

    I was very keen to make this dish however I am a bit confused with the recipe. Does the tomato sauce get added to the mince? And then mix this saucy mince with the rice to stuff in the capsicums. Or do the mince and rice getmixed together, stuff the capsicums, then make the sauce to pour over the top??

    Thank you

  • Hello, How much sauce is

    Submitted by MissMonty on 6. August 2014 - 14:54.

    Hello, How much sauce is needed?  Volume per bottle or amount of TMX Sauce.  My mum is Albanian and this is a family favourite but I think she only uses Tomato paste so its all a little less saucy than the pics here.  I can't wait to try to make it myself.

  • Didn't have to add anything

    Submitted by brownbag on 11. July 2014 - 18:30.

    Didn't have to add anything at all.  I did add a chorizo though, only because I didn't have enough meat, and it worked well.  Delicious

    This is my first review as I just had to say how much my family love this recipe! So yummy. I make it the day before and refrigerate, then just throw it in the oven the next day. Awesome to come home to on a cold evening. Please add more recipes of this type if you have them as this is perfection tmrc_emoticons.)

    Absolutely loved this dish. Made it twice now and it just gets better. Even my 2 year old boy had 3 helpings.

     

    Any and all Croation Recipe's are long awaited and met with great enthusiasm.

     

    Anthony Bourdain said that "Croation cooking is the next big thing" and one day there will be Croation Restaurants with 5 Star ratings around the globe and in all major cities.

     

    Many thanks and keep em coming,

       Thank you for sharing the stuffed capsicum thermomix version, I often make this dish   on the stove top/oven, but will be using the thermomix from now on.  When I added the sauce to the mince, I also added the rice for the last two minutes.  I cooked the capsicums in the oven for 40 minutes, the last 10 minutes - I added EDC mash potatoes.   tmrc_emoticons.D  I also use red capsicum, as I find them sweeter!  tmrc_emoticons.;)
