Asian-Inspired Mustard Greens
I don't know what it is about this combination of flavors, but I could eat these every day. Even though it contains the right ingredients in the right proportions for a teriyaki sauce, which is what I was aiming for originally, to describe the flavor as such would be inaccurate. I'm usually perfectly happy with this and a bowl of rice as a meal in itself, but when I'm forced to share, it pairs well with roasted chicken or just about any kind of pork.
Mirin vinegar is mild. Another mild vinegar (apple cider vinegar is great) can be substituted, but may slightly affect the flavor. Sake is rice wine. There are cooking varieties, but table sake works just as well in this. Sherry is a common substitute, but any not-too-grapey white to blush wine will work as well in this. If desired, minced ginger and/or red pepper flakes can be added with the garlic. I don't care for ginger, but I'm assured it's delicious in this.
