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, pat dry. Cook until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using mahi-mahi, halve any larger pieces to match smaller pieces. Pat dry. Cook until mahi-mahi reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-4 minutes per side. Fish thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner fillet, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  • If using sirloin steaks, pat dry. Cook until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add 1/4 cup water, carrots, and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cover and cook until water is mostly evaporated and carrots are tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Uncover and add half the garlic (reserve remaining for sauce), brown sugar, red pepper flakes (to taste), 1/4 tsp. salt, a pinch of pepper, and butter. Stir often until fragrant and garlic is lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
