Recipe Ingredients for Black-Eyed Peas with Pork and Greens

2 pound boneless pork chops, trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup instant brown rice
8 cups kale leaves, roughly chopped (about 1 small bunch), tough stems removed
4 cloves garlic, minced
14 ounce reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons vinegar, (apple cider ) or sherry vinegar
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, preferably hot (see Tip)
15 ounce black-eyed peas, rinsed

Recipe Directions for Black-Eyed Peas with Pork and 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.
