The title says it all! Quickly cut a bell pepper and skip the seed scraping.

You'll need:

  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 cutting board
  • 1 sharp knife (I prefer a cook's knife or santoku knife [pictured])

Step 1: Cut the Top Off

Step 2: Pull the Seeds Out in One Clump

Step 3: Pop the Stem Off

With this method you don't waste any of the edible pepper portion.

Step 4: Chop As Desired

All prepped for a delicious dish!

<p>I do the same as <a href="https://www.instructables.com/member/therealdavidtennant" rel="nofollow">therealdavidtennant</a>, its a little quicker.</p>
<p>I went to a cooking class where we were shown to cut the top of the pepper, remove the seed pod, make one vertical cut, and &quot;open&quot; the pepper in one piece. Then slide your knife straight across under the veins. Also, don't chop the peppers on the skin side, but the inside part. Less slippery.</p>
<p>Another way</p><p>Looks good. Separates seeds from the edible bit!</p><p>I make a circular cut 1cm deep into the skin round the stem with a paring knife, then pull out the plug containing the stem and the seeds and discard. Then rinse out any loose seeds. </p><p>Then either stuff pepper OR cut pepper lengthwise in half.</p><p>Then each half lengthwise in segments, then each segment in squares.</p>
I do this except after I slice the bottom off then slice the &quot;ring&quot; open and unroll it so I can slice it easier
