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 pulled pork, coarsely chop. Excess pork fat will render while cooking and add flavor. Follow same instructions as chicken, baking in hot oven on baking sheet or microwaving until heated through, 5-8 minutes.
