Stuffed Bell Peppers with Ground Beef (Kiymali Biber Dolmasi)

2 lb (~1kg) bell/large peppers
1 cup rice, washed and drained
½ lb ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tomato, petite diced
1 tsp tomato paste
½ cup olive oil
1-2 cups hot water
1 Tbsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1- ½ tomato, sliced in pieces for tops (optional)

Wash the bell/large peppers, cut the tops off, and remove seeds. In a bowl, place all the stuffing ingredients, but water. Mix them all and with a spoon fill the peppers up to 2/3 with the mixture. If desired, place one slice of tomato as a cap on top of each pepper. In a large saucepan or pot, place the stuffed bell peppers and add hot water, enough to almost cover half height of the peppers.
Close the lid and cook on low-medium heat, until the peppers get soft and rice is cooked, for about 20-30 minutes. Serve hot or warm.
ENJOY

There's a Turkish restaurant in Maroochydore in northeastern Australia that offers Biber and Kabak and your stuffed peppers look just like what they serve. I'm dying to try this. Fingers crossed that it looks just like yours. Thanks for the recipe.
