Stuffed Peppers: do you brown the meat before making yours?

mschow | Dec 20, 200912:22 PM     28

I was thinking about making stuffed red peppers for dinner. Just to check the proper amount of meat vs rice to cook, I looked at some recipes online. Most of them call for browning the meat before mixing it with the rice. My mother made these all the time when I was growing up, but I never remember her browning the meat. Stuffed peppers are not the type of thing I normally make (but we have 27 inches of snow here today, so I thought it was a good comfort food to make!). Do you brown your meat before stuffing the peppers, or have any good recipe suggestions? TIA
