Before You Cook

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) |

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

  1. 1

    Prepare The Ingredients

    Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into 1" dice. Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1" dice. Remove husk on tomatillos, rinse again, cut tops off, and quarter. There's a sticky residue underneath the tomatillo husk, which is why a second rinse is needed.

  2. 2

    Start The Meal

    In a clean slow cooker, combine onion, red bell peppers, tomatillos, chicken demi-glace, half the garlic salt, and tomatillo salsa. Top with pork roast and remaining garlic salt. Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook for 3 ½ hours. Make a cornstarch slurry. Stir into slow cooker and continue to cook until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 30 minutes.

  3. 3

    Make The Rice

    After 3 ½ hours, bring a small pot with rice, 3 cups water, and ¼ tsp. salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish The Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with cotija. Bon appétit!
