From the Test Kitchen

The vibrant, smoky flavor of poblano stars two ways in this dish: before baking, we’re loading the fresh peppers with tender beef and carrots, which are also sautéed in ancho chile paste, a specialty condiment made from dried, smoked poblanos. A topping of crisp radishes and juicy tomatoes brings bright contrast to the dish.

Prepare & roast the peppers:
1 Prepare & roast the peppers:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then halve lengthwise. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer, cut side up. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until slightly softened. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.
