Collard Greens with Bacon
Updated: Oct 20, 2022
So simple and so delicious, collard greens stewed in some kind of pork is the ultimate comfort food for rural southerners and urban soul food eaters across America. This version takes only an hour, an improvement from the traditional 2-3 hour stew time, and is just as satisfying.
1 Bunch of Collard Greens, cleaned, de-veined, and roughly chopped
3 sliced thick-cut bacon, cubed
1/4 tsp Frank's Hot Sauce
Fry the bacon in a saucepan over med-high heat until edges are browned. Add greens and saute until softened. Add hot sauce and salt to taste, and pour in water until greens are just covered. Bring to a boil, scraping browned bits from the bacon from the bottom of the pot. Cover pot and simmer on low for at least an hour, or until desired softness.
