Simmered Mustard Greens

Simmered Mustard Greens

Source: Mad Hungry


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 2 pounds mustard greens, thick stems trimmed, leaves washed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth


  1. Heat oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When oil shimmers, add onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions become soft and golden in places, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add red-pepper flakes to pot along with half the mustard greens and cook, stirring, to wilt greens. Add remaining mustard greens and continue cooking until all greens are wilted, about 5 minutes total.

  3. Add chicken broth to pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook, partially covered, until greens are tender, about 20 minutes.

    These are sooo good and same recipe can be used for any greens - turnip, collard, or mustard. I am a Texan and usually use bacon grease (yikes!!!) - about a tablespoon - to saute the onions which is what my mother and grandmother used. But we usually cooked them in just water and seasoned to taste. If I use the chicken broth then I don't use the bacon grease. And yes, we eat bacon a couple of times a week!
