For stuffed peppers:

18 medium peppers (in Croatia sort Babura)

1kg minced meat (700g beef and 300g pork)

100g rice

1 onion (medium size), finely chopped

3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1 egg

Wash the peppers well, cut the upper part and clean inside from seeds. Wash them again.

Mix all other ingredients, carefully, do not knead too much with hand (you can use fork or plastic cooking spoon). Fill the peppers, but do not overfill (during cooking, filling is growing bigger and peeper may break). Put the peppers in the pot (for 18 peppers I used 2 Pots) with open side up.

Za filovane paprike:

18 srednjih paprika (babura)

1kg mljevenog mesa (700g junetine i 300g svinjetine)

100g riže

1 srednje veliki crveni luk, sitno narezan

3 češnja češnjaka, sitno narezana

1 jaje

Oko 3 kavene žlice soli

Papar po okusu

Sitno sjeckani svježi peršin

Oko 1 kavene žlice slatke mljevene paprike

Po želji malo mljevenog čilija (ja sam koristila ekstra ljuti pa sam samo na vrh noža dodala)

Paprike dobro oprati i odrezati im gornji dio kod peteljeljke te pažljivo očistiti od koštica i ponovo dobro oprati.

Ostale sastojke zajedno pomiješati, najbolje kuhačom da se meso ne stišće previše rukama. Tako će nakon kuhanja ostati rahlije. Puniti paprike, ali ne tiskati previše meso niti punuti preko vrha paprika jer kuhanjem se fil još proširi pa bi paprike mogle puknuti. Paprike poslagati u lonac (za 18 paprika koristila sam dva lonca) s otvorenom stranom okrenutom prema gore. Preliti s pripremljenom juhom

Juha za filovane paprike:

Oko 4 jušne žlice ulja

3 jušne žlice brašna

1 glavica crvenog luka, sitno narezanog

1 kavena žlica smeđeg šećera

4 češnja češnjaka, sitno narezana

Oko 800 ml pasirane rajčice

Oko 1,5 l povrtnog temeljca

Sol, papar, na vrh noža srednje ljute mljevene paprike

Na ulju popržiti crveni luk i kratko karamelizirati te dodati češnjak. Nakon minute-dvije dodati brašno i popržiti dok ne poprimi svijetlosmeđu boju. Dodati po želji malo slatke ili ljute paprike. Maknuti s vatre te dodati, uz stalno miješanje, pasiranu rajčicu i temeljac. Pustiti da provrije, začiniti solju i paprom po okusu te preliti paprike. Kuhati na laganoj vatri oko sat do sati i trideset minuta.
