This boldly flavored spin on Hoppin' John replaces salt pork or bacon with lean pork chops. Plus we've added greens?in this case kale?a traditional accompaniment with the dish. Serve with cornbread and a glass of Spanish rioja.

Recipe Ingredients for Black-Eyed Peas with Pork & Greens

16 oz Pork, Fresh, Loin, Sirloin (Chops), Boneless
0.5 tsp Salt, Table
0.25 tsp Pepper, Black
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil, Canola
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
2 tbsp Tomato Paste
1 cup Rice, White, Long-grain, Regular, Cooked
8 cup Spinach
4 clove Garlic
0.5 cup Soup, Chicken Broth
2 tbsp Vinegar, Cider
0.5 tsp Paprika
2 cup Black Eyed Peas, Organic

Recipe Directions for Black-Eyed Peas with Pork & Greens

  1. Toss pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the pork and cook, stirring, until just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.

  2. Add onion, tomato paste and rice to the pan and cook until the onion softens, about 4 minutes. Add kale and garlic and cook until the kale begins to wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in broth, vinegar, paprika and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until the rice is done, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the reserved pork and black-eyed peas and heat for 1 minute.
