A down-home delicious stew that my family loves.

A really easy and delicious stew! I will be making this again. We have no collard greens in Australia, so I used mustard greens (gai choy) instead and I used fresh okra. I cooked the stew on the stove top for about an hour, rather than using a slow cooker. Thanks for a great recipe!!
