  1. Heat peanut oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the bacon bits and garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in 2 or 3 handfuls of mustard greens, allow the greens to wilt, and stir in remaining greens; sprinkle with onion powder. Continue to cook and stir until the greens are bright green, wilted, and starting to become tender, 2 to 3 more minutes. Drizzle greens with fish sauce, stir to combine, and serve.

This was incredibly simple and delicious. I cooked and used 2 to 3 strips of real bacon and used the little grease left from the bacon in the pan for added flavor. It's not much so I wasn't worried about saturated fats. I will cook this recipe again and again.

I LOVE this recipe. It's quick, easy, and tastes amazing. I added a little butter to it (about a teaspoon), and that worked well with the other ingredients.

I did not know that mustard greens are very bitter until I ate these. I did not care for this recipe, but I think it's because I probably wouldn't like mustard greens in any form UNLESS I could cook them in a way to take the bitterness out. Probably this is an acquired taste and anyone who likes the bitterness would love this recipe.

These turned out great! The only difference I made was I used Soy Sauce and 1 Tsp of Siracha at the end because I didn't have any fish sauce. I will be making these again.

Great base recipe! What I did different (only because this is what I had on hand): used olive oil instead of peanut oil, oyster sauce instead of fish sauce, added a heaping teaspoon of sambal oelek, and I forgot onion powder. Added some sliced polish sausage as my protein, Turned out delicious
