BRAISED GINGER/GARLIC PORK ON BED OF MASHED SWEET/IRISH POTATOES WITH SAUTEED KALE

There is no denying. This time of the year when the temperatures plummet considerably, our palates call for something rather comforting. Guys, it happened to yours truly and I had to heed to the calling. Okay, I promised myself that I wouldn’t indulge in meat until Christmas. But who I’m I kidding?

On my recent visit to the store, I saw that special package of pork adjacent to the pork chops. So, I decided to break my promise. Eh, some would call me a flip flopper….I guess I am. Sometimes, one has to eat their words. Well, I ate more than my words. I had a succulent serving of braised pork infused in root ginger and a few cloves of garlic.

I still had a few potatoes (Irish) from a few weeks ago. Those spuds were just at the brink of sprouting. I caught them just in time. I added them to sweet potatoes along with a clove of garlic. They were boiled in salted water until they were fork tender. Then, I smashed and added a little sour cream along with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

I served my braised pork with a serving of sauteed kale. The final dish was just as I had imaged. I was over the moon.
