Need Advice Right Now. Can My Stuffed Pepper Disaster Be Adverted?

I have stuffed peppers in the oven right now. I didn't cook the rice before I stuffed them. So now it's an hour after the insert into the oven and of course the rice is still raw. Help! Thanks-

  1. Put an inch ANY hot liquid in the bottom of your still hot roaster. cover tightly with foil. Turn up to 375 and let steam for the next half hour. I think that'll do it. You can probably even go as high as 400 F. - since they're covered they won't brown. Keep an eye to make sure the liquid at bottom doesn't boil dry, though.

        It worked! They came out great. Looking forward to leftovers since these things tend to taste better the next day.

          Great save, Momachef! I am making stuffed peppers soon with raw rice...

          I love them, tho Frenchman does not. I never 'foist' them on him since I don't like making rice just for that purpose. I may try again with raw rice and the steaming technique. Good info:)

            Yaaaaaaay!! (Next time, make sure your pan liquid is hot when it goes into the oven, and cover as above, for the first 35-40 minutes. No fail.
