Simmered Kale with Spanish Sherry Vinegar

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cups diced onion
  • 2 large bunches fresh kale, washed & coarsely chopped (allow clinging water to remain)
  • ¼ cup diced smoked or salt-cured ham, optional
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • Spanish sherry vinegar, to taste
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy pot set over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the garlic and onions and sauté 3-5minutes. Add the kale, diced ham and the chicken stock to the pot, cover, reduce heat to low setting and continue cooking 20-30 minutes or until the kale is tender. Season the cooked kale with salt, pepper and Spanish sherry vinegar to taste and serve.

Note: To keep the kale as green as possible, lift the lid off the pot once or twice during cooking.
