Stuffed Peppers - pre cooking peppers

michaeljc70 | Feb 1, 2012 08:59 AM

I usually make my stuffed peppers by cooking them wrapped in foil for 15 in the oven to help soften them. I then stuff them with cooked stuffing (rice, pork, etc). I am wondering if microwaving the peppers will work just as well. I've also heard of people boiling them or steaming them for a couple minutes.

I know you can skip this step (my Mother never precooked the peppers), but I find the pepper is not done when filling is hot or the filling is overcooked and the pepper is done.

Does anyone steam/boil/microwave their peppers first? If so, for how long?
