About the Recipe

When I first came to the UK, one of the dishes I really enjoyed was Italian and Greek stuffed peppers. Combining these peppers with a Japanese sauce makes them even better. These make a great lunch or dinner or even a lunchbox or picnic treat.


70g onion

160g minced pork

2 bell peppers, each sliced into 2 halves 

1/8 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp panko breadcrumbs*

1 tbsp milk

1 heaped tbsp plain flour

for the teriyaki sauce:

1.5 tbsp sugar

3 tbsp mirin

3 tbsp cooking sake

3 soy sauce

some veg oil for frying

*if you don’t have panko breadcrumbs, you can used fresh breadcrumbs instead


add the milk to the panko breadcrumbs and leave to stand for 5 minutes

finely chop the onion

put the minced pork, chopped onion, panko mixture, salt & pepper in a bowl and mix well

sprinkle some plain flour inside the bell peppers, (so the filling won’t come out when they are cooked)

divide the meat mixture into 4 portions and stuff the pepper pieces (slice off a little of the pepper if the filling doesn't fill it completely

shake a little more flour over the meat miixture

heat 1 tbsp of veg oil in a frying pan, fry the peppers (meat side down) for 5-6 mins over a medium heat with the lid on

turn the peppers over, adjust the heat so that they don’t burn and cook further 5-6 mins with the lid on

for the teriyaki sauce:

combine the the soy sauce, sake, sugar & mirin in a pan

bring to the boil and simmer for 6-8 mins until the sauce thickens slightly

put your stuffed peppers on a plate and drizzle with teriyaki sauce. serve with some salad and Japanese rice
