Southern-style collard greens simmered with ham hock just like mama used to make is a tasty side dish and will bring you good luck in the New Year.
I enjoyed these very much, so did my boyfriend who had never had collard greens before. Next time though I think I will add some brown sugar to help with the bitter taste of the greens. Also more garlic (I can never get enough) and an double the bacon. When I was cooking I brought the broth to a boil before adding the green and reducing the heat, just to get things off to a hot start. Overall this was a very good recipe!!!
Guilty. I ate the whole thing. I took a bite, and one thing led to another, and suddenly there were no more Kickin' Collards left in my pan. See, I'm new to the whole collard greens scene. I love vegetables, and real good down-home cooking, and this.. Whoa nelly, this is something I'll be making frequently. I did follow other suggestions by reviewers and used a packed TB of brown sugar and a splash of cider vinegar. I also cooked them longer than suggested (a few hours), cooked them in 2 TBs of bacon grease instead of oil, and added one extra slice of bacon. I love the bacon, but I didn't want it to overthrow the greens. Truly a work of art, and thank you all so much. Maybe I'll make that second # of greens I have in the fridge....
Amazing! I used a mixture of collards and kale and followed the instructions exactly except cooked them a couple hours simmering on the stove. Highly recommend!
OMG! I consider myself a collard greens connoisseur (family from the south) & I am known for my kick butt collard greens....but this recipe is TO DIE FOR!!! I took the advice of others and used more bacon & left out the olive oil and just used the bacon grease. Added 1 tblsp of brown sugar & a dash of apple cider vinegar & BOOM BABY!!! PERFECTO!!! Can't wait for everyone to get home for dinner tonight.I'm positive I will have to make more tomorrow.
