Pork, White Bean & Kale Soup
Servings: 6
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Pound Pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Medium onion finely chopped
  • 4 Cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Teaspoon McCormick® Paprika, preferably smoked
  • 1/4 Teaspoon McCormick® Red Pepper, Crushed, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 Cup White wine
  • 4 Plum tomatoes chopped
  • 4 Cup Reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Bunch kale ribs removed, chopped (about 8 cups lightly packed)
  • 1 15- ounce can white beans rinsed
  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add pork, sprinkle with salt and cook, stirring once or twice, until no longer pink on the outside, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate with tongs, leaving juices in the pot.

  2. Add onion to the pot and cook, stirring often, until just beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic, paprika and crushed red pepper (if using) and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add wine and tomatoes, increase heat to high and stir to scrape up any browned bits. Add broth and bring to a boil.

  3. Add kale and stir just until it wilts. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale is just tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in beans, the reserved pork and any accumulated juices; simmer until the beans and pork are heated through, about 2 minutes.

This delicious recipe for Pork, White Bean & Kale Soup pairs perfectly with Joy Cellars 2016 Tempranillo.

Our Joy Cellars 2016 Tempranillo was grown in Paso Robles, along the Pacific Coast of California. This Tempranillo displays some maturity and dark fruit like cherry, boysenberry and blueberry. Later some tobacco, licorice and prune aromas come forward. There is a hint of smokiness in the nose and in the mouth. This wine has a fruity, round attack that emerges shortly after a lot of powerful and lush tannins. The body might be perceived as mildly intense. The aromas and flavors are very compact within the wine but provide an explosive expression.
