    Julesong's Note:

    Who would've thought you could grill collard greens? But Chef Gabriel Claycamp showed us how at Culinary Communion, and they were absolutely delicious!! The outside leaves are crispy, and the inner ones tender and juicy. Posted with permission.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 bunches collard greens, trimmed and washed
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons bacon fat (bacon/duck/goose preferred) or 2 tablespoons duck fat (bacon/duck/goose preferred) or 2 tablespoons goose fat (bacon/duck/goose preferred) or 2 tablespoons butter (bacon/duck/goose preferred) or 2 tablespoons lard (bacon/duck/goose preferred)
    • ice water
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


    1. 1
      Prepare a large bowl of ice water; preheat your grill.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and add the salt and fat.
    3. 3
      When salt is dissolved and fat is melted, add the collard greens to the boiling water and simmer for 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove collards from the water and immediately plunge into the ice water to halt the cooking and preserve the beautiful green color.
    5. 5
      (When removed from the boiling water, the collards should be coated with the fat - that's what you want).
    6. 6
      Remove the collards from the ice water a leaf at a time and stack them flat on top of each other, about 7 to 9 leaves high.
    7. 7
      Oil your grill well and grill the stacked collard leaves until done, turning once, about 5 minutes per side (depending on the temperature of your grill).
    8. 8
      Cut stacked collards in half or quarters, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.

      This was awesome! I am new to using collard greens, but grew some this year in our garden - when I saw this I knew it was a winner and when it hit the table, the rest of our family agreed. It's a keeper!! Will make again - easy and delicious. I used butter for fat and next time with more planning I will use the bacon fat which I am sure will make it even tastier!! Thank you!

      My favorite collard green recipe yet and I have made over 8 recipes in the last 2 months. (I think I over-planted on the collard greens this winter). I only had butter, so that is what I used, I like that we didn't even need to remove the hard stem in the middle. I am having them again tonight along with Kabobs!

      I'm having two stacks next time. These were amazing to look at and eat. I was surprised at how much butter clung to the greens, making them easy to grill and delicious. Great recipe, Julesong. We'll be having this one over and over.
