Make the chile oil
- If using, on a cutting board, using a rolling pin or the bottom of a small pot or bowl, lightly crush the Sichuan peppercorns. Transfer the peppercorns to a small heatproof bowl, add as many chile flakes as you like, and stir to combine.

- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.
While the pork and kale cook, prepare the garnishes.
Prep the garnishes

- Lightly crush the peppercorns.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
