Spicy Southern Collards
In the South, it's considered a homemade sin if you don't eat your collards on New Year's, because it symbolizes the blessing of "money" for the year to come. Whether this tradition is a tale or not, we always make sure to have a big bowl of them!
  
Spicy Southern Collards

 

Instructions:

Wash collards and let dry. 

Heat oil and butter in large Dutch oven. Sauté onion until translucent and add red pepper flakes.

Prepare the greens by removing the stems. Lay the leaves on top of one another and roll up like a cigar to cut the leaves into ribbons. Add the greens to the onion and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes until wilted. Add garlic and cook one more minute. Then add streak o'lean and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and allow to simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour.

You can dress up collards by serving them with fresh diced tomatoes, onions, and cornbread. 

Serves: 6 guests
