Pork Pesto Skillet
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 lbs ground pork
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups fresh basil, tightly packed (about the contents of a 4-oz container)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 bunch kale
  1. Gently pre-heat a skillet on medium-high heat for a minute. When it is ready, add the ground pork, breaking up in to bits and cooking for 10-15 minutes, stirring, until browned.
  2. In the meantime, place the olive oil, basil, garlic, lemon juice, and salt into a blender. Blend for 30 seconds or just until incorporated (or more, if you like a more blended pesto). You may need to use your tamper here, or stop the blender to scrape the sides down--whatever works!
  3. Once the pork has reabsorbed all of the fat and started browning, add the kale to the skillet and continue cooking for a few minutes, being sure to stir occasionally.
  4. Turn off the heat and add the pesto to the skillet. Stir to combine and serve warm.
