  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 2, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 8-10 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 2, cooking until turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 2, cooking until burger is heated through, 8-10 minutes.

  1. 1

    Form the Meatballs

    In a mixing bowl, combine panko and 2 Tbsp. water. Let sit, 1 minute.

    After 1 minute, add ground beef, half the garlic salt, and half the mushroom seasoning (reserve remaining of both for green beans) to bowl with panko. Stir to combine.

    Form mixture into eight evenly-sized meatballs.

  2. 2

    Start the Meatballs

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

    Add meatballs to hot pan and roll occasionally until browned all over, 5-6 minutes.

    Add bacon and mushrooms. Stir occasionally until lightly softened, 2-3 minutes.

    Add demi-glace, 2 Tbsp. water, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-5 minutes.

    While meatballs cook, cook green beans.

  3. 3

    Cook the Green Beans

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

    Add green beans to hot pan and cook, 1 minute.

    Add 1/4 cup water, remaining garlic salt, remaining mushroom seasoning, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and cook until tender, 6-8 minutes.

    If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish Meatballs and Finish Dish

    Uncover pan with meatballs. Stir in cream cheese until melted and combined, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner.
