  • Test Kitchen Tips
  • Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  • Creamy Mustard Sauce recipe will make 1 cup of sauce.  Only 4 tablespoons are needed for this recipe.  Use more as desired.  This sauce may be made ahead of time. 
  • You may substitute your favorite Dijon-mustard in place of Creamy Mustard Sauce.
