Turkey Joes

 

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 lb. ground turkey (dark meat tastes best) or ground beef
½ teaspoon salt
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon molasses (not blackstrap)
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1-2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, to taste
¼-½ teaspoon chipotle powder, chili powder, or Tabasco to taste
Optional: a tablespoon or 2 of Chinese oyster sauce or your favorite BBQ sauce
4 crusty sandwich rolls, split (I used onion-flecked kaiser rolls)

 

Heat oil in a heavy pot over moderately high heat, then sauté onion, pepper, and garlic, stirring occasionally, till soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add turkey and salt; sauté, breaking up lumps with a wooden spoon, till meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients up through Worcestershire sauce and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and optional sauces. An ice cream scoop helps get meat onto each bun.
