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) |

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Cook the Potatoes

    Quarter potatoes. Bring a medium pot with potatoes covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 15-18 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot. Add spinach (prepared in next step), butter, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper and mash until spinach is wilted and combined. Set aside. While potatoes cook, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Sauce

    Coarsely chop spinach. Stem and mince thyme. Quarter apple and remove core. Cut into ½" slices. Combine mustard and hot sauce (to taste) in a mixing bowl. Set aside. Finely crush pretzels until they reach the consistency of breadcrumbs. For best results, place in a plastic bag and crush with a heavy object.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Pork Chops

    Pat pork chops dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread ½ tsp. mustard-hot sauce mixture on one side of each pork chop (reserve remaining sauce for topping). Top with crushed pretzels, pressing firmly to adhere.

  4. 4

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork chops to hot pan, pretzel-side down, and cook until golden-brown, 2-3 minutes on one side. Transfer pork chops to prepared baking sheet, pretzel-side up. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Bake in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 3 minutes. While pork cooks, cook apples.

  5. 5

    Cook Apple and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook pork chops to medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil, apple, and thyme to hot pan. Stir occasionally until apple begins to soften, 2-3 minutes. Add demi-glace and a pinch of salt. Stir until apple is glazed, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pork chops with remaining mustard-hot sauce. Bon appétit!
