Ingredients

Steps

01.
Preheat oven to 200 C.
02.

Heat oil in large frying pan, add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, until onion softens. Add pork and veal and half the thyme; cook, stirring, until browned.

03.
Add sauce, stock, rice and parsley; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, about 15 mins or until rice is almost tender, stirring occasionally, season to taste.

Meanwhile, oil small baking dish. Cut tops from capsicums, reserve as lids. Scoop out seeds and membranes. Fill capsicums with mince mixture; stand upright in baking dish.
