I'm a Chinese/Hawaiian girl married to an African American and I never tasted greens till I met him. I've been looking for a recipe to surprise him with because he's always saying how he misses greens. So I made this recipe and only changed a few things based on others reviews. I use 1 lb of greens (not 1 bunch), a pince of red pepper flakes, 1 lg onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 6 slices of bacon (fried and cut up), and 3 tbsp of Liquid Smoke. I also put the ham hock overnight in the slow cooker to make it tender and then used the liquid as the "water" for the recipe. My husband couldn't believe this was my first try and loved it. He said it was right up there with his mom's greens (and she's a good ol' girl from Alabama). I was thrilled and will continue to use this often. It was soooo easy.
