Pork, Butternut Squash, and Kale with Parmesan Polenta


1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
2 tablespoons Dierbergs olive oil (divided)
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup dry vermouth
1 container (18 ounces) Dierbergs Fresh Cut butternut squash
1 carton (8.25 ounces) chicken stock
2 tablespoons minced shallot
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons rubbed sage leaves
3 cups water
1 cup polenta corn grits
½ teaspoon coarse salt
2 tablespoons Dierbergs butter
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 container (5 ounces) baby kale


Trim fat and silver skin from pork; cut into bite-size pieces.

In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and season with salt and pepper; cut stirring occasionally until cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place pork on plate; set aside.

Deglaze skillet with vermouth. Add remaining olive oil, squash, stock, shallot, garlic, and sage; cover and cook stirring occasionally until squash is tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil over medium-high heat.

Quickly whisk in polenta. Reduce heat to low; cook stirring frequently until tender, about 5 minutes. Whisk in parmesan and butter.

Stir pork along with accumulated juices into squash. Stir in kale in batches until wilted.

Divide polenta among 4 plates; top with pork mixture.
