The RIGHT WAY To Cook Greens!
I consider myself to be an expert at cooking collard greens. I had heard about stir-frying or sautéing greens, so when I came across this recipe, it seemed like it might be worth a try. Well, I could not be more wrong.
I did not use a mix of greens, just collard greens. I had more than a "mess" of green, probably about 3 bunches and it took way too long to sauté them. I thought this would be a quick way to get delicious greens, but it was more work preparing greens this way than my normal way. After what seemed to be at least 45 min., maybe more, I sampled the greens. They were still tough and the stems did not cook down enough for me. The taste was also very bland.
I added some broth, water and additional season and boiled for at least another 45 min. Still did not like the greens. They were still tough, bland and the stems were not to my liking. I added more water and cooked for at least another hour. The same results. It does not seem as if the greens were any more tender than before I added the additional liquids. After the rave reviews, I am definitely disappointed and won't be making this dish again.
