Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large heavy-bottomed pan with a tight-fitting lid, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned, 4 to 6 minutes; using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Set aside.

  • Add kale to pan in two or three batches, waiting for one batch to wilt before adding the next. Cook over medium until bright green, about 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover, and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes, stirring once or twice. Uncover; cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with sausage.

I realized after I started making this recipe that didn't have any red wine vinegar so I substituted it with a little lemon juice for the acidity. I doubled the amount of sausage and it was good! It claims it yields 4 servings but it made just enough for 2 of us. It's not a heavy meal, it definitely didn't fill us but it would be a good side to share with a family.
