Before You Cook

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 chicken breasts, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 2 and 4, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Start the Orzo

    Once water is boiling, add orzo and cook until al dente, 4-5 minutes.

    Drain in a wire-mesh strainer and set aside. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

    While orzo cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve tomatoes.

    Thinly slice chives.

    Peel and mince shallot.

    Pat steaks dry and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Finish the Orzo

    Return pot used to cook orzo to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot and a pinch of salt to hot pot and stir occasionally until tender, 1-3 minutes.

    Stir in wine until combined, 30-60 seconds. Adding alcohol to a hot pot may cause some flames; use caution.

    Add tomatoes and stir occasionally until tomatoes release juices, 1-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in orzo and 1/4 tsp. salt until combined. Cover and set aside.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add steaks to hot pan and cook until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    Remove from burner and remove steaks to a plate. Rest, 3 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-low heat.

    Add demi-glace, 2 Tbsp. water, and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, add garlic and herb butter. Stir constantly until melted and completely incorporated, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping steak with sauce and chives and garnishing orzo with cheese. Bon appétit!
