Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the garlic and sweet potato

  • Using a fork or the side of a knife, gently mash the roasted garlic into a paste.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into 1-inch pieces.
In a medium sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir or whisk in the garlic and coconut milk and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the sweet potato and ¼ cup [½ cup] water, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potato softens, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a fork or back of a spoon, lightly mash the potato. Meanwhile, prepare the pork.


Prep and cook the pork

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Finish the sweet potato and kale

To the pot with the sweet potato, working in batches if needed, add the kale and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pork, sweet potato, and kale to individual plates and serve.
