    From the Test Kitchen

    This star of this vibrant dish is the irresistibly spicy black bean-chile sauce we’re using to coat tender bites of beef. It’s all served over a bed of brown rice, green beans, and peppers––perfectly crisped in the pan––providing the perfect base for soaking all the flavors up.

    tips & techniques
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the rice and cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly. 

    Prepare the ingredients
    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans; cut into 1-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. 

    Cook the vegetables
    3 Cook the vegetables

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sautéed aromatics on medium-high until hot. Add the green bean pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the diced peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook & glaze the beef
    4 Cook & glaze the beef

    Separate the beef; pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned beef in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the black bean-chile sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 2 tablespoons of water. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the beef is coated and just cooked through. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
