Ingredients
1 1/2
pounds extra-lean ground beef
1
cup chopped onion (1 large)
1 1/2
cups bottled roasted red sweet pepper strips
1
8 ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
1/2
cup chili sauce
1
tablespoon molasses
1
tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1
tablespoon reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
2
1
teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/2
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2
cup porter beer or other dark beer
12
whole wheat buns, split and toasted
Directions
  1. In a large skillet cook ground beef and onion over medium heat until meat is brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off any fat. Cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large resealable freezer bag or airtight container combine roasted pepper strips, tomato sauce, chili sauce, molasses, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, oregano, salt, thyme, and black pepper. Add meat mixture to pepper mixture in bag. Seal and freeze for up to 1 month.
  3. To serve, thaw meat mixture in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Transfer meat mixture to a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in beer. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Serve meat mixture in buns (if desired, use a slotted spoon for serving).
