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 ¼" sticks. Place potato sticks on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven, 15 minutes. Carefully, remove from oven and flip potato sticks. Bake again until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Gently toss baked fries with half the Cajun seasoning (reserve remaining for steak strips). Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. While fries bake, make pimento spread and cook steak strips.

  2. 2

    Make the Pimento Spread

    Combine cream cheese, cheddar-jack cheese, and pesto in a mixing bowl until incorporated. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Steak Strips

    Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steak strips to hot pan and cook undisturbed, 2-3 minutes. Stir in remaining Cajun seasoning. Stir occasionally until browned and steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Toast the Buns

    Place buns directly on oven rack in hot oven, cut-sides down, and toast until golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
