Place the minced peppers in a bowl along with 1 minced onion, 1 pound of ground chuck, 1/2 pound of ground pork and 1/2 cup of rinsed and uncooked rice, and mix in 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper and 1 minced garlic clove.

Spoon the mixture into the peppers, and place them in a slow cooker along with 2 8-ounce cans of tomato sauce mixed with 1 teaspoon of sugar. Cook the stuffed peppers on low for eight to 10 hours. Serve them with sour cream.
