Wash produce before use
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.
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.
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
Make the gravy; finish the pork
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.
Cook the collard greens
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Strip the collard greens.
- Season and spread the flour mixture.
- Measure the oil for the pork and gravy.
- Time the pork.
