Ingredients[edit]

  • 2 pounds assorted dark leafy greens, such as mustard, collard, and rainbow chard
  • 8 rashers bacon, cut into about 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 Tbsp bacon fat (or omit)

  • 1 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  2. Add greens. Sauté over medium high heat for 7 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and lower heat to medium low. Cook for 45 minutes. Defat if needed.
  4. Serve warm, with a vinegar-based, clear hot sauce to accompany.
