Simmered Mustard Greens



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped (1 cup)

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • teaspoon red-pepper flakes

  • 2 pounds mustard greens, thick stems trimmed, leaves washed and cut into 2-inch pieces

  • ½ 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.
