Skillet Swiss Chard with Bacon


Servings: Serves 2 - 4 as a side.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 16 minutes


The Seasoning Blend

  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp oregano Ground.
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp red chile flake Optional.
  • The Veggies plus Pork Belly

  • 3 pieces bacon (Raw, not cooked.)
  • 3 leaves Swiss chard (Big ol' ones ~ 12 oz total.)
  • 1 yellow onion Medium-sized; large dice.
  • 1 Tbsp white Balsamic vinegar or to taste.
  • 1 Roma tomato Diced up for garnish; pick a big one.

  • Instructions:

    Separate the chard ribs from the leaves and cut the ribs on the bias about 1/2 inch thick. Slice the leaves into 1 in strips. Add the bacon pieces to a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat to render some fat. Once the bacon is half way cooked (about 4 minutes), take the fire to medium high and add the chard ribs (not the leaves just yet), diced onion and all of the seasoning blend. Continue to cook over medium high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, while giving everything a toss with a spatula every couple of minutes. At the end of 8 - 10 as the onion bits are just starting to caramelize, add the leaves and toss 'em with the rest for the skillet contents. Cook over medium high for 4 minutes tossing every minute or so. At the end of 4 minutes or when the leaves are wilted and bright green, toss in the white balsamic vinegar. Plate up, garnish with diced tomato and serve.
