Collards recipe?

I am looking for a good recipe for collard greens. I have already smoked 4 ham hocks to put in the pot. I have had some before with some great northern white beans in them which were good but I assume not traditional. The internet has many recipes but I am looking for someones "favorite" recipe. Looking forward to some great greens with my ribs tomorrow. [p]Somebody please help this, as an old friend used to say, "north of the Mason Dixon Line boy" out.[p]Thanks[p]Chuck[p]Chuck


  • Chuck, i make them often. No recipe though.
    Sautee' medium onion in some vegetable oil in a soup pot- medium heat on a cook top, til a slightly browned. Add your smoked ham hock & then add the well washed collard greens, with the stems removed & chopeed to 1/4" length. Add salt & pepper to taste, then cover with the lid & allow to steam for about 20min (turning with a spoon in between)
    taste & adjust seasonings and serve with some of the juices.
