Instructions

Plug in the electric pressure cooker.

Cut the top off of the peppers.

Remove the seeds from the peppers and clean out the insides, then set aside upside down to allow any excess water to drain.

Place the ground beef into a large mixing bowl.

Add the uncooked rice, raw onion, seasoning and sauce to the bowl and combine thoroughly.

Spoon the beef mixture into the hollowed out peppers, putting about a third of the mixture into each pepper.

Place the cover onto the pot and close to seal.

Set the pressure cooker to cook on manual high pressure for 20 minutes.

Once the cooking cycle has finished allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes.

Remove the steaming basket from the pot, then remove the peppers from the basket.

Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella on top of the peppers.

Serve the peppers immediately with salt and pepper to taste.
