Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, breaking up meat until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using Impossible Burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, breaking up meat until warmed through, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Separate leaves of lettuce for cups.

  2. 2

    Cook the Ground Beef

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil, ground beef, garlic salt, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer ground beef to towel-lined plate, leaving as much liquid behind as possible.

    While ground beef cooks, make slaw.

  3. 3

    Make the Slaw

    Combine slaw and basil pesto aioli in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Lettuce Wraps

    Place a lettuce cup on a clean work surface (or layer two cups for extra crunch and structural support).

    Fill with a few spoonfuls of ground beef and top with roasted red peppers and slaw.

    Repeat for about five more lettuce cups.
