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 Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 2, breaking up burger until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 1 and 2, breaking up turkey until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Ground Beef

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add ground beef to hot pan. Break up meat until beginning to brown, 2-3 minutes.

    Stir in seasoning blend until combined.

    While beef cooks, place carrot and celery blend in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave on high, 3 minutes, stirring once halfway through.

  2. 2

    Start the Skillet

    Stir carrot and celery blend and 1/4 tsp. salt into hot pan until combined.

    Sprinkle with flour and stir until no dry flour remains, 1-2 minutes.

    Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until broth thickens and ground beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-4 minutes.

    While skillet simmers, heat mashed potatoes.

  3. 3

    Heat the Mashed Potatoes

    Place mashed potatoes in another microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave until heated through, 1-2 minutes, stirring potatoes halfway through.

  4. 4

    Finish Skillet and Finish Dish

    Add peas to hot pan and stir occasionally until warmed through and bright green, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in demi-glace, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until combined.
