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 beef, follow same instructions as steak strips in Steps 2, cooking with a pinch of salt and pepper, breaking up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Once water is boiling, add tortellini and cook until al dente, 3-4 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain tortellini in a colander and set aside. Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ¼"-wide strips. Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Steak Strips and Pepepres

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat with 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steak strips to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until starting to brown, 2-3 minutes. Add demi-glace and red bell pepper. Then stir occasionally until browned and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

  3. 3

    Add the Tortellini

    Add tortellini, marinara, and half the pasta cooking water to pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until sauce thickens slightly to coat pasta, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner.
