Beer Braised Collard Greens

  • Cusine



2 Tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion

2 cloves garlic

12 oz beer

1 xlg bouillon cube

2 cups water

1 lb chopped collard greens

1 Tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

cracked black pepper to taste


Chop the onion and mince the garlic. Cook both in a large pot with olive oil over medium heat until softened. If you are using fresh collard greens, they will need to be washed, stems removed and cut into 2 inch pieces. I used pre-washed and chopped, bagged collard greens . Add the beer, bouillon cube, water, collard greens, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and black pepper to the pot. Place a lid on top and allow the pot to come to a boil. Once the pot begins to boil, the collards will have wilted enough to give it all a stir without everything spilling out. Stir everything up good then place the lid back on top, reduce the heat to low and let simmer until the collards are to the desired tenderness . Stir every 15 minutes or so.
