Learn how to efficiently cut bell peppers in the kitchen with this simple step-by-step guide! We'll show you four easy ways to cut bell peppers, giving you a number of options depending on the recipe, your personal preference, and cooking style.
Begin by laying the bell pepper flat on its side, and cut off the top (stem end) and the bottom. Remove and discard the stem if it remains attached to the removed top portion. Stand the pepper back up and cut open one side of the pepper. Slide your knife along the inside walls of the pepper, releasing the core and leaving you with one long strip of pepper.
Julienne Bell Pepper
Once the core has been removed, lay the bell pepper skin side down on your cutting board, and carefully remove any white pith from the flesh. Removing the pith helps to ensure an even thickness of pepper in the final julienne cut.
Once the pith has been removed, cut the trimmed bell pepper into a thin julienne roughly 2mm x 2mm x 4 -5cm long.
Diced Bell Pepper
Once the bell pepper core has been removed, lay the pepper flat on your cutting board, and cut the pepper into thick strips.
Bunch a few of the strips together, and cutting perpendicular to the strips, cut the strips into even squares or chunks of pepper.
Sliced Bell Pepper Rings
After the core has been removed, lay the pepper flat on its side, and cut off thin cross-sections of the pepper with a very sharp knife, leaving you with perfect bell pepper rings.
Stuffed Bell Pepper
Remove only the top of the pepper (stem end), as well as the core, by running your knife around the inside of the pepper sides, leaving the side intact.
Once The core has been removed, you may trim the bottom end of the pepper to get it to sit upright. Stuff the hollowed out bell pepper as you see fit.
