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 ground pork, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 25-30 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until burger is heated through, 20-25 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Combine green beans, 2 tsp. olive oil, half the Asian garlic, ginger, & chile seasoning (to taste; reserve remaining for meatballs), and a pinch of salt and pepper in provided tray. Spread into a single layer.

    Cover tray with foil. Bake covered in hot oven, 15 minutes.

    Green beans will finish cooking in a later step.

    While green beans bake, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Add the Meatballs

    Combine turkey, panko, remaining Asian garlic, ginger, & chile seasoning (use less if spice-averse), and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Form into six evenly-sized meatballs.

    Carefully remove tray from oven and uncover. Push green beans to one side. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Place meatballs in now-empty half of tray.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake again uncovered in hot oven until green beans are tender and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 22-25 minutes.

    While meal bakes, combine brown sugar and Szechuan sauce (to taste) in another mixing bowl.

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    To serve, top meatballs with brown sugar-Szechuan sauce and crispy onions and garnish green beans with sesame dressing. Bon appétit!
