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 turkey or ground beef, follow same instructions as ground pork.

  • If using Italian sausage, remove from casing and follow same instructions as ground pork.

  • If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Crumble, and serve on top.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pork and Squash

    Halve any large butternut squash pieces to roughly match smaller pieces.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add ground pork, butternut squash, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up pork with a spoon, until squash starts to soften and no pink remains on pork, 5-7 minutes.

  2. 2

    Add the Tomatoes and Seasoning

    Stir demi-glace, tomatoes, seasoning rub and 1 cup water into pan. Bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, cover and stir occasionally until squash is tender, 4-5 minutes.

    While chili cooks, drain beans.

  3. 3

    Add the Beans

    Drain black beans in a colander and rinse.

    Once squash is tender, add beans, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to pan and stir to combine.

    Return to a boil. Once boiling, until beans are warmed through, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
