Braised Hearty Greens
We hoped to coax fabulous flavor from winter greens minus the pork and an hours-long simmer.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a one-pot hearty greens recipe with no parcooking. To achieve this, we cooked half of the greens with a little bit of liquid before adding the rest and then covered the pot. When the greens had almost the tender-firm texture we wanted, we removed the lid to allow the liquid to cook off. The result: a winter greens recipe that highlights the greens’ cabbagelike flavor and firm texture.
