Soak the cherries
While the cherries soak, prepare the pork.
Prep and cook the pork
- Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
While the pork cooks, prepare the escarole and onion.
Char the escarole; make the cherry compote
- Trim the root end from the escarole, keeping the core intact; cut the lettuce in half lengthwise.
- Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In the same pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the cherries and reserved soaking liquid and cook until warmed through, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the escarole and cherry compote cook, prepare the relish.
Make the pecan-apple relish
- Coarsely chop the pecans.
- Core and coarsely chop the apple.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Measure the onion.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Stir the pecan-apple relish.
