Southern Style Collard Greens

  • 2 tbsp. Bacon fat
  • 1 Ham hock
  • 8 10 cups chopped collard greens, about 2 pounds
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 1 Onion, medium
  • 1 qt Chicken broth
  • 1 Vinegar and hot sauce
  • 1 cups Water

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.
