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 antibiotic free chicken breasts, pat dry. Cook until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using filets mignon, 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.

  • If using trout, pat dry. Add trout, skin-side up first, and cook until fish reaches a minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pork

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

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

    Add pork medallions 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. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While pork cooks, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Trim zucchini ends, halve lengthwise, and cut into 1/2" slices. Zucchini quantity may vary, but total weight will remain the same. Don't worry; recipe instructions are not impacted.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Place another medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add zucchini, diced peppers, minced garlic and parsley, garlic salt, and garlic pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned and tender, 6-8 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While vegetables cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    In a microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and pesto (to taste). Microwave uncovered until heated through, 25-35 seconds.

    Carefully remove from microwave. Add 2 tsp. lime juice and mayonnaise. Stir vigorously until completely combined.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pork with sauce and garnishing vegetables with cheese. Squeeze lime wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
