Sloppy Joes

4 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 medium red onions, chopped
1 large red or yellow bell pepper, chopped
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme or a pinch of dried
1 1/2 pounds ground round or other lean ground beef
1 1/2 cups canned tomato sauce
1 cup beer (such as Bass ale)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallion greens
4 pieces French or Italia bread or 4 seeded roos, split crosswise

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the onions,
bell pepper, garlic, salt, pepper and thyme. Cook over moderate
heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened but
not browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

heat to moderately high. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking
up the meat with a wooden spoon, until browned in some spots and
still partly rare in others, about 4 minutes. Return the vegetables
to the skillet, and stir in the tomato sauce, beer, Worcestershire
and hot pepper sauce and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to
low and cook, partially covered, until the mixture has thickened
slightly, about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the

a baking sheet and toast under the broiler about 4 inches from the
heat until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Place the toast on
serving plates and spoon the meat mixture on top.
