Collard Greens

I  have fallen in love with Collard Greens. But the last time I picked them up I forgot to pick a pork shank to cook them with. “Paula Deen’s” recipe was the only way I knew to prepare them. Well the other thing I forgot about is that Paula’s recipe takes 2 hours to cook and I only had 45 minutes before dinner. So here is what I did.

Ingredients:  serves 2 people

  • 1 bunch of Collard Greens
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of bacon grease
  • 1/2 a stick of salted butter
  • 1 TB Hot Sauce
  • 1 TB all meat seasoning
  • 1/2 an onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

DSC_0947In a medium pot combine the chicken broth, bacon grease, butter, hot sauce, all meat seasoning, onion and garlic and over high heat bring to a boil. While your waiting for the boil rinse the Collard Greens and remove the leaves from the stem. Toll them up and slice them in about 1/2-inch wide strips. Add the strips to the boiling ingredients, lower heat to medium, cover and simmer for 30 minutes until the greens are tender. Strain and serve.
