This delicious, healthy sandwich was a quick and easy lunch. I found the frozen leftover cooked pork in my freezer and defrosted it in the microwave. Caramelized onions go well with everything, and adding kale to the show, how can you go wrong? I try to incorporate kale anywhere I can as it has such an impressive nutritional profile (check out the stats below!). Today’s use of this “superfood” proved to be one I’ll make again. It is fairly carb-y, however. You can pull the carbs down on this by reducing the amount of kale used.

1 T. bacon grease
1 oz. onion, sliced thinly
4 oz. leftover cooked pork, sliced thinly (I used roasted shoulder meat)
3/4 c. chopped kale (stems removed)
Dash each salt and black pepper
½ sheet Joseph’s Lavash Bread with flax & oat fiber (or other plan-suitable wrap of your choice)
VARIATION: Use fresh or frozen spinach instead of kale
DIRECTIONS: Heat bacon grease in a non-stick skillet. Add the onion to the pan. Brown and caramelize the onion, stirring often, until the pieces begin to actually brown. Add meat and allow to brown a bit, stirring as it cooks. Add the kale, salt and pepper and just cook until kale barely begins to wilt. Do not overcook so the kale will remain sweet rather than get strong. With tongs, serve up the meat/kale mixture onto the lavash bread and serve with a side of homemade mayo to dab on top as you eat. ENJOY!
