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) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry. Cook until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using salmon, pat dry. Add salmon, skin-side up first, and cook until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  • If using NY strip steak, pat dry. Cook until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Crisp Bacon

    Trim and thinly slice green onions.

    Pat pork dry and season all over with fiesta seasoning and a pinch of salt. If you receive a whole pork tenderloin, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, slice into medallions, 3/4"-thick.

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add bacon to hot, dry pan. Stir often until crispy, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer bacon to towel-lined plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  2. 2

    Cook the Pork

    Place another medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add pork to hot pan and cook until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side.

    Medallion thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner medallion, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    Remove from burner. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While pork cooks, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Heat the Sweet Potatoes

    Return pan used to crisp bacon to medium heat.

    Add sweet potatoes, plain butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir often until butter is melted and potatoes are heated through, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Place chipotle butter (to taste) in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave uncovered until melted, 25-35 seconds.

    Carefully remove from microwave. Add 2 tsp. cold water and mayonnaise. Stir vigorously until completely combined.

    If sauce is too thick, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pork with sauce (to taste) and garnishing sweet potatoes with crisped bacon and green onions. Bon appétit!
