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 pork chops, tilapia, ahi tuna, or chicken, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as salmon in Step 3, searing undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes, then roasting until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using tilapia, skip searing and roast until fish reaches minimum internal temperature, 12-14 minutes.

  • If using ahi tuna, sear until tuna reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side. Skip oven step. Tuna is often enjoyed medium-rare (pink in the middle). For medium-rare, cook 1-2 minutes per side. Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness.

  • If using chicken, follow same instructions as salmon in Step 3, searing undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes, then roasting until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.
