Beef Stuffed Bitter Melon

As promised…

We purchased two of these unusual (for us) veggies on Sunday at the local market.

Tonight we decided to cook them up.

  • Started with lean ground beef.
  • Added in tomato sauce, onions, red peppers, and a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella to bind it, also assorted spices, parsley and chives. Salt and pepper.
  • Sliced the veg lengthwise and scraped out seeds and pulp with a spoon.
  • Brushed one tsp olive oil into each shell and stuffed with the beef mixture.
  • Baked 20 min at 375 and then sprinkled shredded cheese and panco on top and baked for another 10 min.
  • Allowed to cool slightly and I put some Tobasco sauce on top.
