  • Place peppers in a baking dish standing upside down and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat sauté pan on medium heat and add oil. Once oil is hot, add mushrooms and garlic, then sauté for 2 minutes. Add mirin and sauté for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Combine remaining ingredients (including ground pork and par-cooked rice) and mushrooms in a mixing bowl.
  • Stuff cooled peppers with pork filling. Cover stuffed pepper with the pepper top and bake for 1 hour, or until meat thermometer inserted into pepper reads 165°F. Let cool 5 minutes before enjoying.
