  • Brown meat with onions and garlic in large skillet; cool.
  • Meanwhile, add kale to large pan of boiling water; cook 2 min. Drain; immediately add to bowl of ice water. Remove from ice water; drain well. Carefully open kale leaves; place on clean kitchen towels, pressing lightly to flatten. Cover with additional towels; pat gently to remove excess water.
