Braised Kale and Bacon


I had made wonderful pork loin in the slow cooker and wanted to come with something great to pair with it. Playing off the smoky rich flavor I came up with this one. Kale is a super healthy green and it’s tough texture makes it fun to cook with, not getting soggy like other greens.

Ingredients:
1 lb Kale leaves clean, dry and cut in to big pieces
5 pieces of bacon chopped small
1 TBS Honey
1 tsp Chipotle Powder
2 TBS Water
Salt and Pepper to taste

Start by cooking off the bacon in a hit pan. Once pieces are hard, remove and place aside saving a bit of the grease in the pan. Now add kale and water over medium to low heat. Cook kale down for about 3 minutes and then add honey, chipotle, salt and pepper. Cook for an addition 5 min over medium low heat until kale is completely cooked and as soft as you would like. Serve hot.
