Beer Bacon Collard Greens
- Serves: 6
- Complexity: easy
As an adult living in the south, I have found I absolutely love braised collard greens.
Step by Step Directions
In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, fry the bacon over medium-high heat for about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onions are wilted about 4 minutes. Add the beer, chicken stock, vinegar, and sugar and bring to a boil.
Begin adding the greens in batches, pressing down with a spoon to submerge them in the hot liquid and adding more as they wilt. When all of the greens have been added, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the greens, partially covered and stirring occasionally, for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
