This stir-fried, Asian-inspired, fast and easy way to prepare collard greens doesn't have the 'slimy' factor in long-cooked versions, making it a hit with my picky family!

5 stars for making me like collard greens! Trying to eat more greens and collards are so cheap and healthy, but gross imo. Wanted to try a different recipe instead of true southern style I’ve always had, and this was perfect. Nice subtle flavor, probably depends heavily on what broth you use. I ended up using a bit more ingredients as my bundle was pretty big. Also, if you are a collard n00b like me I highly recommend taking a sec to gooogle how to properly trim them. Read More

This was fabulous. Other reviewer said they were tough but that was not my experience. I removed stems, rolled a stack of leaves cigar style and cut cross ways for thinner strips. May have simmered a little longer than 7 minutes but these were soft and tasty. I skipped the sesame oil. Used Bragg's Liquid Aminos so they were a bit saltier than they should have been but that was me, not the recipe. Next time I will use Tamari or soy sauce. This will be my go-to for collard greens! Thank you!!! Read More

I love collards, but, these took much longer to be eatable. We all know that collards are a tough leafed vegetable and for many years I always simmered them slowly in chicken broth for about 30-40 minutes. If you like them somewhat tougher, follow this recipe. Read More
