 Cooking instructions 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.

  To caramelize pineapple slices, heat small amount of butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until melted. Place pineapple slices in skillet; cook until heated through and edges brings to brown, turning once.
