Simmered Collard Greens

 

Simmered Collard Greens

2 lbs collard greens, cut in 2 inch pieces
8 slices bacon, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1 onion, chopped
3 gloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp red pepper flakes
4 cups chicken broth

  • Cook bacon in a large pot over medium-high heat until crisp.  Add chopped onion and garlic to pot and cook about 5 minutes.
  • Add collards to pan and cook for a few minutes, until they start to wilt.  Pour in the chicken broth and add the salt, pepper, sugar, and red pepper flakes.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for at least an hour, until greens are tender.  I prefer to simmer longer.
