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) |

  1. 1

    Start the Carrot

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" slices on an angle. Place carrot on prepared baking sheet and toss with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast on bottom rack in hot oven, 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Carrot will finish cooking in a later step. While carrot roasts, make meatloaves.

  2. 2

    Make the Meatloaves

    Finely crush crackers. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, crushed crackers, cheese, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Form mixture into two evenly-sized meatloaves.

  3. 3

    Roast the Carrot and Meatloaves

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and meatloaves to hot pan. Sear undisturbed until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes. Carefully, push carrot to one side of baking sheet. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Place meatloaves on empty side of baking sheet, seared side up. Roast in hot oven on bottom rack until carrot is tender and meatloaves are browned, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven. Meatloaves will finish roasting in a later step. While meatloaves roast, make sauces.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauces

    Stem dill. Coarsely chop half the dill (reserve half, left whole, for garnish). In another mixing bowl, combine beef demi-glace and jalapeño jelly until smooth. Set aside. In another mixing bowl, combine seasoning blend, sour cream, 2 tsp. water, and chopped dill until combined and smooth. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Roast Peas and Finish Dish

    Carefully, top meatloaves evenly with jalapeño-demi-glace. Add peas to baking sheet with carrot. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Bake again until peas are bright green and meatloaves reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping vegetables with sour cream-dill mixture and reserved dill. Bon appétit!
