Balkan Stuffed Green Peppers

Cut the tops off 8 green peppers and remove the seeds. Mix a pound
of lean minced beef (Hamburger) with a heaping 1/4 cup of rice.
Add a clove of garlic chopped, a medium onion chopped and salt and
pepper and blend well. Pack this mixture into each pepper to fill
2/3ds and replace the tops. Fit upright in a large saucepan. To
cover you will need about 2 cups of tomato juice to which add about
4 tbsp vinegar (wine preferred) along with 3 tbsp of sugar. A little
chicken stock (about 1 tbsp powdered) would be nice if you have
it. Add enough water to this to just cover the peppersif you are

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about an hour until
the peppers are tender and about 2/3ds of the liquid is absorbed.

You can substitute brown sugar or honey for the sweetener. Add
garlic to the juice if you're a fanatic. You can also puree a can
of tomatoes and add tomato juice to bring you up to quantity if
you like a stronger tomato note. Adjust the rice to meat mixture
to if you like.

Serve either hot and cold as a first course or main course.
