Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 pounds collard greens, stems and tough center ribs removed, leaves sliced into 1/2-inch ribbons
  • 1 smoked ham hock  
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed 
  • 6 cups chicken broth 
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper  

Directions

Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add the onions, and saute until just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the collards, and then the ham hock, garlic, chicken broth and some salt and pepper.

Bring to a simmer and cook until the greens are tender, about 45 minutes. Before serving, stir to break up the ham hock, and season with salt and pepper if needed.
