Cooking Instructions

This recipe was inspired by “Kangaroo stuffed banana peppers” by The Witches Kitchen. I believe in sustainable farming practises, and tried to incorporate Kangaroo into our diet, until we were able to acquire some venison. For me personally, i find i can substitute venison for beef in any recipe with similar results. So this following recipe is very adaptable.


6 Large Banana peppers.

500g Lean beef mince.

5-6 Large tomatos.

100g Ricotta cheese.

1 Small brown onion.

2 cloves of Garlic (finely chopped).

2 tsp Cumin.

1/3 cup of fresh mint (2Tbsp dried).


-Brown garlic and onion and add mince. When browned add 1-2 diced tomatoes and 1/2 cup water.

-Simmer until water has been absorbed.

-Stir in mint and ricotta.

-Meanwhile prepare your peppers for stuffing by cutting of the tops and removing any seeds.

-Stuff peppers with mince mixture, a chopstick is a great utensil which can help to push the mixture down into the pepper. Take your time and be gentle. Cover with extra sliced tomatoes, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

-Add 1/2 cup water, put lid or foil on and bake for about 45min-1hr in a moderate to high oven.
