Help with Long grained brown rice in Hawaiian stuffed bell Peppers

kaaronsbear | Mar 5, 201711:28 AM     8

I recently ran across this recipe I had from 10 years ago and the first time I made it it was perfect. The wife and I made it last night and although it wasn't awful it was far from how it turned out the first time. It calls for 1 cup uncooked brown rice blended with ground beef ,onion,dry ginger.crushed pineapple sweet hot chili sauce and half cup of tomatoe sauce, spoon mixture into blanched peppers . pour 25ounces tomatoe sauce over peppers in two 8x8 pyrex baking dishes seal with heavy duty foil bake 45 minutes at 375 degrees, uncover and bake additional 20 minutes. rtemove and rest 10 minutes. The rice did not seem cooked, hardly soft and still cracked if you smashed it . We thought Maybe the rice just needs more time to "absorb" and returned it to the oven checking it at 30 minute levels for a total of four hours no change in the rice , still the same as it was after the initial "bake". What did I miss? Just not enough liquid I dont know any thoughts?
