Pork and chicken would be well-suited to
this sweet-and-sour side dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1 1 pounds kale, ribs removed, coarsely 
  •        chopped (see Tip)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt, or to taste

Directions

  • 1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium 
  • heat. Add kale and cook, tossing with two
  • large spoons, until bright green, about 1
  • minute. Add water, cover and cook, stirring
  • occasionally, for 3 minutes. Stir in apples; 
  • cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 
  • until the kale is tender, 8 to 10 minutes more.
  • 2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, mustard, brown
  • sugar and salt in a small bowl. Add the mixture
  • to the kale, increase heat to high and boil, 
  • uncovered, until most of the liquid evaporates, 
  • 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Tip: A 1- to 1 1/2-pound bunch of kale yields 
  • 16 to 24 cups of chopped leaves. When preparing 
  • kale for these recipes, remove the tough ribs, chop
  • or tear the kale as directed, then wash it--allowing 
  • some water to cling to the leaves. The moisture
  • helps steam the kale during the first stages of cooking.
