Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
  • Strip the collard green leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.

2

Brown the pork

  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the flour with the dry rub, ground mustard, salt, and pepper; spread in an even layer.
  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
Working with 1 chop at a time, dredge the pork in the flour mixture, turning to coat; shake off any excess and set aside the remaining flour mixture.
In a large frying pan over medium 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, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan

3

Make the gravy; finish the pork

In the same pan used for the pork, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Whisk in 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] leftover flour mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until the flour mixture is golden and has a nutty fragrance, 3 to 4 minutes. Slowly pour in the chicken broth, stirring constantly until fully incorporated and no lumps remain. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the pork, and cook until the gravy thickens and the pork is cooked through but still faintly pink within, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the pork and gravy cook, prepare the collard greens.

4

Cook the collard greens

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the garlic and collard greens (the greens in batches if needed) and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the apple cider vinegar and cook until thickened slightly, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pork and collard greens to individual plates, spoon the gravy over the pork, and serve.
