Braised Collard Greens

My Grandma Ollie-Belle made the best 'greens.' This recipe is as close to hers as I could come. The 'pot-liquor' is the key to great greens!! Serve with fresh green onions and black-eyed peas with rice.

Brazilian Collards

Rating: 4.56 stars
Spicy, tangy collard greens accented with black pepper bacon, cayenne pepper and vinegar are a big deal in Brazil. Here is my recipe. Since bacon fat is an essential part of this recipe don't drain it during any of the steps! I say that if your veggies are fattening then eat a lighter main dish!

Grandma's Collard Greens
Rating: Unrated
These are without a doubt, the best collard greens I have ever eaten (and I have had my share). My grandma used to make this recipe in the summer when her collards in the garden were ready. If you don't like these, you don't like collard greens ... guaranteed!! Add more red pepper flakes if you like it spicy.
