Slow Cooked Collards
Vegetables & Side Dishes
Contributed by: Annelle Williams
Ingredients:
  • 7-8 lbs. fresh collard greens
  • 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 slices thick smoked bacon cut into one inch pieces
  • 1 large sweet onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. dried chili flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Remove stems from collards and discard. Wash leaves in a large bowl of water. Layer the leaves and cut into 1-inch strips.
Add olive oil to a large soup pot over medium heat. Add bacon and onion and cook until they are tender. Add garlic and cook an additional 2 minutes. Add chicken broth to pot and bring to a boil.
Add greens and chili flakes, reduce heat, cover and simmer about one hour, until greens are tender (add additional broth if needed). Taste for salt and pepper.
