DIRECTIONS

  • Wash collard greens and remove stems. Place in crock pot on low.
  • In a skillet, cook bacon pieces until crispy.
  • Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper and cook until onions are translucent.
  • Add the brown sugar and cook for about 1 minute more.
  • Add the bacon / onion mixture to the crock pot.
  • Pour in the beef stock.
  • Add the ham hock.
  • Cook on low for 4 hours.
  • After 4 hours, remove the ham hock and shred the meat off the bone, adding it back to the crock pot.
  • Keep cooking on low for another 3-4 hours and serve.
  • This will not be bitter, so no vinegar or extra sugar is needed. If you aren't on a rotation diet and you can use other seasonings, I'd suggest using a teaspoon of Tony Cachere's in place of the salt.
