  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Step 2

    Bring water and rice to a boil in a covered saucepan. Reduce heat to low and simmer until rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef and cook until evenly browned and crumbly, 7 to 9 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Hollow out bell peppers by removing and discarding the tops, seeds, and membranes. Slice the bottoms of the peppers if necessary to make sure they stand up straight.
  5. Step 5

    Arrange peppers in a baking dish with the hollowed sides facing upward.
  6. Step 6

    Prepare filling by mixing cooked beef, cooked rice, 1/2 of the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Spoon an equal amount of filling into each hollowed pepper.
  7. Step 7

    Mix remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning in a bowl, and pour over the stuffed peppers.
  8. Step 8

    Bake in the preheated oven, basting with sauce every 15 minutes, until peppers are tender, about 1 hour.
