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

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into 1/4" fries and pat dry.

    Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Spread into a single layer. Bake in hot oven until golden brown, 25-30 minutes, carefully tossing once halfway through.

    While fries bake, make jam.

  2. 2

    Make the Pickled Jalapeño Jam

    Bring a small pot with jalapeño, vinegar, hot jalapeño jelly, and a pinch of salt to a simmer over medium heat. Once simmering, remove from burner.

    Transfer pickled jalapeño jam to a mixing bowl and let cool, at least 10 minutes.

    While jam cools, form and cook patties.

  3. 3

    Form and Cook the Patties

    In another mixing bowl, thoroughly combine ground beef and seasoning blend. Form mixture into evenly-sized patties, about 21/2" thick.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add patties to hot pan. Cook until lightly charred and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    Top with cheese. Cover, and remove from burner. Set aside covered until cheese melts, 30-60 seconds.

    Uncover, and remove patties to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Toast the Buns

    Return pan used to cook patties to medium-high heat.

    Add buns cut side down, to hot, dry pan, and toast until golden-brown, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
