The Easiest Way to Cut a Bell Pepper
This post contains affiliate links.
I’ve been cutting bell peppers the hard way for 30+ years.
I recently took a Craftsy class with Rick Rodgers called All About Pork. It was excellent, by the way, and he shared a genius tip for cutting bell peppers. After you see how simple it is to do it, you’ll never want to go back to your old way again. At least for me, I didn’t!
Use this method to dice, chop, cut into strips or chunks. It’s all about breaking down the pepper so that it’s easier to work with.
Start by cutting the top off the pepper.
Then cut the bottom off.
Cut a slit down the side of the bell pepper to open it up.
Open it up and slice off the ribs so you have a flat surface to work with.
Then slice or chop like you normally would. I told you it was easy!
I knew this would be a great hack to share and I hope it helps you when you are doing your cooking prep work.
