Difficulty:Easy

Cook Time:2 Hours

Nutritional Information

Collard greens are a great counter to rich cuts of meat such as St. Louis style ribs or short ribs.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. collard greens, tough stems discarded, leaves chopped
  • 2 tablespoons medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons bacon fat
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil (Dynasty or comparable)
  • Chili pepper flakes, a pinch
  • Salt, a couple pinches
  • Sugar, a couple pinches

Directions

  • 1. Use a large skillet with a tight fitting cover. Melt bacon fat and heat olive oil on medium heat. Sauté onion until transparent, a couple of mintues. Add garlic and and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • 2. Mix in the greens, sesame oil, chili pepper flakes, salt, and sugar. Cover and cook until tender, 8-15 minutes. (Note that young collard greens will cook up relatively quickly. Older greens may take upwards of 45 minutes to tenderize.)
