A note about serious food allergies

Cacciatore means “hunter” in Italian, and is not pronounced “catch a Cory.” (But it should be!) You don't need to know what it means, how to spell it, or how to pronounce it, to find yourself gorging on those flavors, with roasted onions, tomatoes, mushroom seasoning, all swirled with butter and topping the succulent pork. Cacciatore, what a Cory? It's pronounced “delicious.”

Before You Cook

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 breasts, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 2 and 4, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using sirloin steak, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 2 and 4, cooking until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Cauliflower Mash

    Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces.

    Bring a medium pot with cauliflower, 11/4 cups water, and 1/4 tsp. salt to a boil over high heat.

    Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high and stir occasionally until water evaporates completely, 18-20 minutes.

    Make sure no water is left in pot; remaining water will make mash runny.

    Remove from burner. Add crème fraîche and buttermilk-dill seasoning and mash until slightly chunky and combined. Cover and set aside.

    While cauliflower cooks, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim zucchini ends and slice into 1/2" rounds on an angle.

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

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

  3. 3

    Roast the Vegetables

    Place zucchini on one half of prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, a pinch of salt, and half the mushroom seasoning (reserve remaining for sauce). Massage oil and seasoning into zucchini. Spread into a single layer on one side.

    Place onions on other half of baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil. Spread into an even layer.

    Roast in hot oven until tender, 8-10 minutes.

    While vegetables roast, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add pork chops to hot pan and cook until golden brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side.

    Pork thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner chop, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    Remove from burner. Transfer to a plate. Rest, 3 minutes.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook pork chops to medium heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil, roasted onions, tomatoes, chicken base, remaining mushroom seasoning, and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, remove from burner. Stir in butter.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pork chops with sauce. Bon appétit!
