10 Medium Bell Peppers
220 g Monterey Jack Cheese, grated
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Beef Mixtures
400 g Ground Beef
8 Sun-dried Tomatoes in oil, chopped
4 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
1 Large Yellow Onion, finely chopped

1 Cup Fresh Basil Leaves, torn
1 Can (28 Fl oz) Whole Tomato, crushed and drained
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 Tbsp Chili Flakes
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
Sea salt to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Prepare the beef mixtures: In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and sauté until translucent, for about 10 minutes.

Add the ground beef and cook until the meat is no longer pink in color. Then add the sun-dried tomato, chili flakes, parsley, and give it a quick stir. Mix in the can tomatoes, tomato paste, and basil leaves and cook for another 10 minutes. Season the beef mixtures with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Preheat oven to 205˚C/400˚F.

Clean the peppers, sliced the top off (reserved), discard the cores and dry with paper towels.

Brush the peppers with olive oil on the outsides. Fill the beef mixture in to the peppers and top with the cheeses. Lightly oil a baking tray, place peppers and the reserved top besides them. Roast for about 25 minutes or until the cheese have melted and light brown in color. Remove from the oven. Let it cool slightly before serving.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
