  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Cook bacon until brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Turn off Saute function. Pour in water and vinegar. Scrape the bottom of the pot to release stuck bits of bacon. Add collard greens and stir to coat. Pour in chicken broth and season with salt. Close and lock the lid.

  • Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions for 20 minutes. Quick-release remaining steam, according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Season with more salt if necessary.

Cook's Note:

Add chopped onions and cook either with the bacon or after the bacon, and cook until soft and translucent. You can add other spices to your liking in addition to salt.

I would probably give this 3.5 stars but there was no bitterness in the leaves so I am leaning toward 4 stars. I usually make this side dish with a ham hock or neck bones. Plus I season with old bay seasoning. I thought it would lack some flavor so I used all chicken broth instead of half chicken broth and half water. It's a decent basic recipe ready to be spiced up a bit per your taste. Read More

Very easy to make. Instead of using water and chicken broth, I used chicken broth and ham broth made with ham base. I also added some soul food seasoning that I had purchased. They were delicious! Even my husband and son loved them! I definitely will make again! Read More
