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 ground beef, follow same instructions as ground pork in Steps 1, 2, and 3, rolling occasionally, 4-5 minutes, and cooking until meatballs reach minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground pork in Steps 1, 2, and 3, rolling occasionally, 5-6 minutes, and cooking until meatballs reach minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off green beans, if necessary.

    Halve and peel onion. Cut into 1/4" dice.

    In a mixing bowl, combine ground pork, panko, mushroom seasoning, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Form mixture into 8 evenly-sized meatballs.

  2. 2

    Start the Meatballs

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.

    Add meatballs to hot pan and roll occasionally until browned all over, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer meatballs to a plate. Meatballs will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Make Gravy and Finish Meatballs

    Return pan used to cook meatballs to medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and onions to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender and lightly browned, 3-5 minutes.

    Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains. Add demi-glace, 1 cup water, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Add meatballs and bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cover, and cook, 3-5 minutes.

    Uncover and stir occasionally until gravy thickens and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While gravy and meatballs cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Cook the Green Beans

    Place another large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add green beans to hot pan and stir occasionally, 1 minute.

    Add 1/4 cup water, cover, and cook until tender, 6-8 minutes.

    Add half the buttermilk-dill seasoning (reserve remaining for crema), 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Remove from burner.

    While green beans cook, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Make Crema and Finish Dish

    In another mixing bowl, combine crème fraîche, remaining buttermilk-dill seasoning, and 1 Tbsp. water. If too thick, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping meatballs with crispy onions and drizzling crema over green beans. Bon appétit!
