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 breast, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 2 and 3, cooking chicken undisturbed until browned on one side, 4-5 minutes, and roasting until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.

  • If using sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 2 and 3, searing steaks undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes, and roasting until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Brussels Sprouts

    Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).

    Place Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into Brussels sprouts.

    Spread into a single layer on one half of baking sheet and roast in hot oven, 12 minutes.

    Remove from oven. Brussels will finish roasting in a later step.

    While Brussels sprouts roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and mince thyme.

    Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into 1/2" chunks.

    Combine thyme, breadcrumbs, and cheese in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

    Pat pork dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook Pork and Finish Brussels Sprouts and Apple

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add pork to hot pan and sear until browned on one side, 3-4 minutes.

    Transfer pork to empty space on baking sheet, seared side up. Spread Dijon on pork and top with thyme-cheese mixture, pressing gently to adhere. There may be some mixture left over. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Add apple pieces to Brussels sprouts. Roast until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

    Remove pork to a plate and rest, 3 minutes. Carefully, toss Brussels sprouts and apple with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Use a utensil! Baking sheet will be hot!

    While pork rests, make sauce.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook pork to medium heat and add 1/4 cup water and demi-glace. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cook until liquid is slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in butter.
