"I use a pressure cooker here to transform these greens into an incredible side."

Ready In:




  • Trim the leaves of the greens from the stems and discard the stems.
  • Heat chorizo in the bottom of the pressure cooker with the top off until browned.
  • Add beef stock to the pot, making sure to scrape sausage off the sides. Add some of the greens to the pot and mix to cover as much as possible with the chorizo/stock mixture.
  • Add the remaining greens to the pot, pressing down to close the pot. This will be well past the "maximum" line, but don't worry as they will wilt significantly below the line by the time they're done.
  • Seal the pressure cooker and cook for 15 minutes. Stream cold water on the lid - avoiding the vent! - to cool the pressure cooker enough to safely open.
  • Drain the greens to remove excess moisture. Season with pepper, garlic salt, and hot sauce.

I have two teenagers who keep things very busy around our house during the daytime. I also work long hours at Ford Motor Company, and I do want to spend time with my family every day. If I try to cook when my kids have their friends over, I'm certain to be interrupted. In other words, my available times for cooking are very limited. I don't want to give up on anything I love - my family, my job, my cooking - so I do most of my cooking after everyone has gone to bed. My wife is a teacher, so this can be very late at night during the summer. Sometimes, I don't get started with my prep work until 12:30 a.m. Am I crazy?? Maybe. I'm also constantly working on healthier ways to prepare food. I deconstruct every recipe I like, and try to make it with healthier ingredients. The big challenge is keeping the food tasty. I believe it's possible to enjoy what you eat and still be healthy. I lost 15 pounds in 6 months largely by preparing my own food (and exercising). If I didn't keep such loony hours, I'd call myself "The Healthy Gourmet".
