1

Prep and cook the pork

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel. Season generously with salt and pepper and rub all over with the paprika.
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 once, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the pork to a sheet pan (do not clean the frying pan). Roast in the oven, turning once, until browned but still faintly pink within, 12 to 15 minutes.
While the pork cooks, prepare the kale.

2

Prep and cook the kale

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Zest and juice the orange, keeping the zest and juice separate. Set aside the zest for the aillade.
In the same frying pan used for the pork, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and starting to caramelize, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the orange juice, raisins, and as much piment d’Espelette as you like. Working in batches if needed, add the kale and cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the kale cooks, prepare the aillade.

3

Make the aillade

  • Finely chop the pecans.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; finely chop the leaves.
In a small bowl, stir together the pecans, garlic, parsley, orange zest, and 1½ tablespoons [3 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pork and kale to individual plates. Top the pork with the aillade and serve.

The pecan aillade was divine and the sweet raisins were a great contrast to the spicy kale. — Sun Basket customer Sherry A.
