Greens are easy. But the time component makes them kinda tough – we last night I cooked them in my crock pot. Holy revelation! I’ll never stir them for hours again (unless I cook them with my Mama and have to use the stirring oar).
crock pot collards
- 2 bunches of collards, removed from stems and washed
- 1 chicken bullion cube
- 2 slices of bacon
- 2 T EVOO
- 3 T vinegar
- Salt & Pep
- High quality H2O
- Crock pot
Load all your ingredients into your crock pot and cover with water – I filled mine to about 1 inch from the top so I’d have plenty of pot likkor (see my post on pot likkor risotto!)
Cook on high overnight (at least 8 hours) then in the AM lower the heat to low and cook for your work day (another 6-8 hours). You can’t really cook collards too long – but cook them less if you’d like more texture in your greens.
You’ll have all the flavor without any of the work. WIN.
