REC:Italian inspired pork chops and kale

I found this one online and made it with spinach, changing just a few things (more garlic, it called for only one glove) and was very happy with the end result, so naturally I want to share it with you guys If you are using spinach it will require far less cooking! I pull my spinach after about 4-5 minutes usually. I also served it with a sprinkling of parmesan.

Italian inspired pork chops and kale

2 lbs (1 kg) kale or spinach
1/4 cup (60 mL) olive oil
2-3 large peeled cloves garlic
4 thick pork chops
2 teaspoons (10 mL) fennel seeds
1 cup (236 mL) hot water
1 tablespoon (15 mL) tomato paste
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Soak kale and rinse it vigorously. Simmer kale for 20 mins with salt in large pot.

While kale is cooking, heat oil in large fry pan. Add garlic and cook for 2 mins over low heat. Add pork chops and saute for 5-7 mins on each side (up the heat at this point). Season to taste with salt, pepper, and fennel seed.

Dissolve tomato paste in hot water and add. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes.

Add tomato sauce to kale. Cover and cook for another few minutes. (Only a 2-3 minutes if using spinach.)
