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 ribeye, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 2 and 4, cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  • If using ahi tuna, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 2 and 4, cooking until tuna reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-5 minutes per side. Tuna is often enjoyed medium-rare (pink in the middle). For medium-rare, cook 1-2 minutes per side. Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness.

  • 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.

  • If using salmon, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and garlic pepper. Follow same instructions as sirloin in Step 4, cooking, skin side up first, until golden brown and salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Peel and cut potatoes into 1" dice.

    Halve garlic.

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes, 3 garlic halves (reserve remaining for butter), 8 cups water, and 2 tsp. salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.

    Reserve 1/4 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot. Add sour cream and mash until smooth, adding potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Season with 1/4 tsp. salt. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes simmer, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and mince tarragon.

    Trim woody ends off asparagus.

    Mince remaining garlic.

    Pat steaks dry, and season both sides completely with garlic pepper and 1/4 tsp. salt.

  3. 3

    Make the Herb Butter

    Combine butter, minced garlic (to taste), and tarragon in a mixing bowl.

    Form butter mixture into two equally-sized disks. Refrigerate until plating.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steaks

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

    Add steaks to hot pan. 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. Remove steaks to a plate and rest, at least 5 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    While steaks rest, cook asparagus.

  5. 5

    Cook the Asparagus

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add asparagus, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Roll occasionally until lightly charred and tender but still crisp, 7-9 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing herb butter disks on steaks. Bon appétit!
