- 3. Add remaining fat and garlic to now-empty skillet and cook over medium heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in half of greens and cook, covered, until greens are beginning to wilt, about 1 minute. Add remaining greens and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in bacon and 2 teaspoons vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to plate.
- 4. Add bourbon, brown sugar, and accumulated pork juices to now-empty skillet and cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Off heat, whisk in butter, mustard, and remaining vinegar. Pour sauce over pork. Serve with greens.
