    JanuaryBride's Note:

    Recipe from Down Home with the Neelys from the Food Network. Yum, yum, yum! They serve this as a side dish with flank steak and mashed potatoes for a complete romantic meal. The chicken stock and bacon take away some of the bitterness of the greens (which I am convinced that you either love or hate) and the sweetness of the raisins is a great complimentary flavor!

    • 1/3 lb sliced bacon, cut in 1/2 inch chunks
    • 2 bunches mustard greens, spines removed and leaves roughly chopped

    • 1/4 cup golden raisin

      Great recipe! I didn't have raisins so I used dried cranberries instead! Was super good. I also added more chicken stock than it called for. Thank you!

      For me 3 stars mean I liked it, 5 stars mean I loved it, and 4 stars is something between. This was very good. I used 2 - 1 lb bags of Glory mustard greens. I did not drain the bacon as I used center cut and there was not a lot of grease in the pan. The little bit that was there, I figures would enhance the bacon flavor, which it did. I ended up using 2-3 times as much broth. Doubled the raisins because I liked the sweetness they gave the mixture. I also salt and peppered liberally. Cooking time for me was about 3x as long as I like my greens softer. I would make this again, but I think I would cut the mustard greens with one or two other types for a bit smoother texture. I would definitely make this again. I am going to serve with balsamic marinated flank steak and garlic and parmesan mashed potatoes.
