Collard Greens


3 lb. collard greens
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2-1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tbsp. dark brown sugar
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper


Separate collard bunches into leaves. Trim and discard tough stalk from center of leaves; stack leaves, and cut in strips. Rinse under cold running water. Drain well.

Saute onion in hot oil in a large pot over medium-high heat until wilted. Add broth, cider vinegar, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.

Gradually add collards to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes or just until wilted.

Reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until tender.

I agree…tried a recipe without some pork flavor and it failed.
