DIRECTIONS

  • Turn an eye on the stove to medium heat.
  • In a large sauté pan or stock pot, cook the chopped bacon for a few minutes until some grease is rendered, then, toss in the onion. Cook this until onion becomes tender. DO NOT DRAIN!
  • Next, throw the collard greens into the bacon and onion and carefully stir a little (it will seem like there are too many collard greens, but they cook down very quickly).
  • Pour in the chicken stock and the water.
  • Add the optional seasonings (pepper, seasoning salt and vinegar).
  • Cover the pan and cook on medium to medium high. You will see the collards begin to wilt rather quickly.
  • Continue cooking until all of the liquid is gone, stirring occasionally. (This normally takes me about 20 minutes.).
  • Try the collards and if they are not as tender as you would like, simply add 1/4 cup of water at a time until they reach the desired tenderness.
