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 |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using pulled pork, place pork in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until warm, 1-2 minutes. Serve on salad.

  • If using chicken, pat dry and season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken browns and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Serve on salad.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes. Serve on salad
