For The Sauce
Wash your peppers. Cut the tops off and cut out the seeds.
Mix your hamburger, onion, garlic, uncooked rice, egg, Paprika and salt and pepper in a bowl and stuff into hollowed out peppers and put them in a large pot.
If you have extra meat mixture left over, roll them into meatballs and throw them in the pot as well.
Mix together your sauce and pour over stuffed peppers and meatballs. Cook on medium high until sauce starts to boil. Reduce heat to low and cover pan with a lid. Let simmer for one hour or until peppers are soft and meat mixture is cooked through.
Bell peppers will not work. They are too big and too thick. They don't cook right and the proportions are wrong. The peppers I used were from Costco and the bag said "vine sweet mini peppers" you basically just want peppers that are longer rather than fatter. The peppers they use in Hungary are called Hungarian yellow wax peppers, but we have never found them in the U.S.
If you don't like Paprika you can substitute Italian seasoning.
