Simmered Stuffed Peppers

Simmered Stuffed Peppers Recipe

To make this for packed lunch, I recommend using smaller bell peppers as they will fit into the lunch box better.

Check out the step-by-step photos on the previous page.


  • 150g minced pork (or chicken)
  • 3 tbsp chopped onions
  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1/2 beaten egg
  • 350g small bell peppers top removed and cored
  • 2 tsp flour (any type; I like potato or corn starch)
  • 1 tsp cooking oil

(A) Marinade 

  • 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp ginger paste (or 1 tsp ginger juice)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic paste (or 3 cloves minced garlic)
  • 1 tsp sake
  • 4 dashes of white pepper to taste
  • chopped spring onions and/or a few pea shoots to garnish

(B) Sauce

  • 100ml water
  • 1/4 tsp dashi powder
  • 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tsp sugar


  1. Prepare the meat stuffing. Add mince meat in a large bowl with the chopped onions, bread crumbs, egg and seasonings (A). Marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge or longer.
  2. Stuff the peppers. Using a small spoon or spatula, stuff each pepper with the meat stuffing prepared in step 1, until all the meat is used up. Dust the exposed meat with some sieved flour.
  3. Cook the dish. Heat a fitting frying pan with oil. Brown the exposed meat surface of each bell pepper slightly until lightly seared, then rest them on the side. Pour sauce (B) onto the pan and simmered covered until the bell peppers are cooked, and the sauce is thickened and syrupy. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Garnish with spring onions and/or pea shoots to serve.
