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 and season both sides with fajita seasoning and a pinch of salt. Follow same instructions as salmon in Step 1, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using NY strip steaks, pat dry and season both sides with fajita seasoning and a pinch of salt. Follow same instructions as salmon in Step 1, cooking until steaks reach desired doneness, or 7-10 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.
