Ingredient IQ

Honey was used as a sweetener in European cookery long before cane sugar was widely available. It tastes sweeter than sugar, which means that less is typically needed in most recipes. Because it’s hydrophilic, or attracts water, it’s an excellent ingredient for baking; cakes made with honey often stay moist longer.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables and pork

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Remove any coarse stems from the mustard greens; coarsely chop the greens.
  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel. Cut the pork crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices; season with salt and pepper.

2

Cook the greens and pork

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Working in batches if needed, add the mustard greens, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Working in batches if needed, add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Pour off all but 1 to 2 tablespoons oil from the pan.
While the greens and pork cook, prepare the sauce ingredients.

3

Make the blueberry-apricot sauce; finish the pork

  • Thinly slice the dried apricots.
  • Measure ½ cup [1 cup] blueberries; save the rest for another use.
  • Finely chop the dried rosemary.
In the same pan used for the greens and pork, add the apricots and half the blueberries and cook over medium-high heat until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the rosemary, honey, sherry vinegar, and ½ cup [1 cup] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the pork and any accumulated juices, and cook until the pork is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining blueberries. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pork and mustard greens to individual plates. Spoon the blueberry-apricot sauce over the pork and serve.
