TERIYAKI BEEF STUFFED PEPPERS FOR 2
1/2 cup uncooked minute white rice
1/2 cup beef flavored broth
2 large red bell peppers
1/2 pound lean ground beef
2 green onions, thinly sliced on the bias, white and green parts separated
1/2 cup shredded carrots
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon chile garlic sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

2 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, green onion whites and shredded carrots over medium heat 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is deep brown and vegetables soften. Stir in brown sugar, soy sauce, chile garlic sauce and ginger; cook 1 to 2 minutes longer or until sauce is absorbed. Stir beef mixture into rice mixture. Stir in cheese.
