Sherla's Southern Greens

Lizzie's Mom is from Dalton, Georgia and is a great cook. She is my go-to when I am making anything with a southern twist. This is my take on collard greens using a mix of hearty greens. They are great as a side to anything pork, but just as comfortable on the plate with some of my fried chicken. Remember when cooking greens there is a ton of shrinkage so visualize how much you want cooked and increase that by close to 10 times raw.

Directions

In a large Dutch oven, add the bacon to the pan over medium heat and cook until the fat begins to render. When the bacon is almost crisp, add the onions and sweat for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sweat for an additional minute.

Remove the tough stems of the greens and discard. Roughly chop the greens and tender stems and add them to the pan with the chile flakes and a large pinch of salt. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes.

Remove the lid and add the vinegar and sugar. Put the lid back on and cook for an additional 30 minutes.

Remove from the heat and check your seasoning; if it's not spicy enough for you, add your favorite hot sauce to taste.

    Though I regularly fix collard greens for my son, I, personally, am not a big "greens" fan. However, I decided to try this recipe because of other reviews and because it was different from the way I learned to cook greens. These greens are PHENOMENAL!!!!! My entire family devoured them, with not a green left in the pot! I served them with Michael Symon's twice fried chicken and candied yams. What a wonderful meal. Will repeat on a regular basis
