Thread: Unstuffed peppers.

    Default Unstuffed peppers.

    This is not my recipe. I saw a recipe posted elsewhere for unstuffed
    peppers that contained rice. It sounded really good! We all love stuffed
    peppers but they are hard to eat, IMO and Angela and my husband won't eat
    the peppers. But they like the flavor the peppers give. I think they would
    eat this though because they will eat other things that have peppers mixed
    in. The following recipe is low carb. No rice in it. I would probably add
    a small amount of rice when making it for us. But... I don't know what
    beef soup base is. Does anyone know? Hopefully we're not allergic to it.
    I do have some tubes of concentrate that when mixed with water will make a
    broth. Do you think this would work? Or is it a powder of some sort? Or
    could I do without it?

    Thanks. Oh, here's the recipe:

    My first father in law used to have what was called beef tea. It was
    basically some topside steak stewed slowly in a fair bit of water with a
    bit of salt. He drank it as he wouldn't eat meat.

    I have seen recipes for that in really old cookbooks. Supposed to be good
    for people who are ill.

    beef soup base in the resto trade is a powder you can look at it at costco
    sams and some upscale places like whole foods... it is just a flavor thing
    broth and concentrate might work just fine... i didn't look at the recipe.
    no time this morning.

    Well crud. If a powder it probably has wheat in it. Restaurant soup always
    has wheat in it.

    : Well crud. If a powder it probably has wheat in it. Restaurant soup always
    : has wheat in it.
    You could alwasy use a beef buillion or a canned beef stock or home made
    beef stock, which you cna freeze for future use too. or just skip it,
    assing, perhaps a bit more salt, as these are generally fairly salty.

    From a cookbook from 1877



    Very strong Beef Tea.—(This tea contains every nutritious element of the
    beef.)—Cut two pounds of lean beef into small dice, put it into a
    covered jar without water, and place it in a moderate[Pg 130] oven for
    four hours, then strain off the gravy, and dilute it to the desired
    strength with boiling water.

    Beef Tea.—(A quick preparation for immediate use.)—Chop one pound of
    lean beef fine, put it into a bowl, and cover it with cold water; let it
    stand for fifteen or twenty minutes, and then pour both beef and liquid
    into a sauce-pan, and place them over the fire to boil from fifteen to
    thirty minutes as time will permit; then strain off the liquid, season
    it slightly, and serve it at once.

    and i was thinking after i sent that last message, if you actually get the
    good base, goya brand iirc, you might not find wheat but you might be more
    apt to find soy, and iirc that is also an issue, so if you do decide to look
    be very careful as resto ingrs, often have different names for the same
    things, "natural flavor enhancers" is usually msg. Lee

    Goya is not safe for people with food allergies but I can't remember why.
    Peanuts, maybe. I think it is made on shared equipment.

    I wonder why they don't say to put the beef in a cold pot and cover it
    with cold water and let it stand.

    Why dirty an extra bowl?
