I'm surprised by all the rave reviews. I didn't think this was bad, just very ho-hum. My husband is usually very complimentary about my cooking, but his response to this dish was "they're kind of bland." I like the idea of using barley with the beef to stuff the peppers and using the microwave, but I'll definitely doctor up this recipe if I make it again.

This was okay but I prefer the CL Jasmine-Rice Stuffed Peppers or the CL Stuffed Green Pepper Soup. I wish I had removed the peppers from the microwave right away, because they had overcooked by the time I was ready to stuff them. I made a double recipe of the filling, and will try the leftover filling in homemade tortillas tonight.

Fantastic! I changed nothing. My husband and my son both loved these.
