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 pulled pork in Step 2, adding 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper and stirring often, breaking up with a spoon, 3-4 minutes. Add white portions of green onions and stir often until no pink remains, 2-3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

  2. 2

    Cook the Pork Mixture

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add pork and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up pork into small pieces, until warmed through, 3-5 minutes.

    Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

    Remove from burner and stir in BBQ sauce.

  3. 3

    Make the Mac and Cheese

    Combine 2/3 the cheese (reserve remaining for garnish), cream cheese, and 2 Tbsp. water in a large microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave, 30 seconds.

    Stir, then microwave again until smooth, 30 seconds.

    Stir in pasta until warmed through.
