Tried this recipe for New Year's day meal today. I usually cook my collard greens in a pressure cooker but the thought of doing something different appealed to me today so I gave it a shot. Like some of the other reviewers, I modified the recipe slightly. I added in 2 cloves of garlic to the onion saute, and also added in about 1/2 tsp of grated fresh ginger. Other than that, I followed pretty closely. I cooked these in a large electric wok which provided easy heat control, and I went about 10 mins or so after adding in the water at approx 350f on the temp controller. I was a bit reluctant to add the sauce because I thought it may be overpowering, but it turned out really well. My wife (who doesn't normally care much for collards) liked it also and thought it was more like a salad dish than a collard dish. I definitely left the greens just a TINY BIT al dente because I didn't want that fully soft texture that you get when you boil collards. That's why I usually use a pressure cooker and these ended up with a very similar texture.
Will definitely be trying this recipe again soon!
