Southern Style Collard Greens

Slow cooked collard greens with a ham hock, onions, vinegar and hot sauce.
Ingredients

Main Course
  • 2 Tbsp bacon fat, lard or vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced from root to tip
  • 1 ham hock
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 quart chicken broth
  • 1-2 cups water
  • 8-10 cups chopped collard greens, about 2 pounds
  • Vinegar and hot sauce to taste

Gravy:
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 3 cups of turkey stock (that you make in step...)
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup cream
Directions
  • Heat the bacon fat in a large pot set over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion in the bacon fat, stirring often, until the edges begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the ham hock, smashed garlic, chicken stock and water and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 1 hour.
  • Add the collard greens to the pot and cook until tender, another 45 minutes to an hour.
  • To serve, fish out the ham hock, pull the meat off the bones and chop. Mix the meat back with the greens and serve with vinegar and hot sauce at the table.
