    From the Test Kitchen

    To give this comforting dish its bold, Spanish-style flavor, we’re coating beef and vegetables with a blend of traditional spices (like paprika, coriander, and more), then simmering it all in a rustic tomato and romesco sauce.

    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling.

Add the beef, sliced carrots, sliced pepper, and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is browned and the vegetables are softened. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil.
