The hardest part about making this dish was actually waiting to fill the peppers with the mouth-watering pork filling!  We opted for pre-made pulled pork to keep things simple.  After popping the peppers in the oven to all we had to do was add the pork to the sauteed onions, garlic and mushrooms and heat through. By the time that was done, so were the peppers! Talk about perfect timing. Now filling them was the challenge and it took all my might to not “taste” more of the mixture as I added it to the peppers. We simply topped ours with cheese, but if you’re looking to increase your fat intake for the evening (thank you The Carb Nite Solution® for encouraging our cheese consumption) feel free to layer the cheese in the mixture as you fill your peppers. We have a few pork dishes in this edition of Transforming Recipes, but after making these we realized that next time around we will definitely be including more pork, and we don’t just mean bacon! You’re the reason we try out new recipes and we love to hear what you think, so leave us comment below!
