My favorite way to make Southern style collard or turnip greens is the Instant Pot method~which is quick, easy, and absolutely delicious!
Whenever I want to whip up a mess of collard or turnip greens, my Instant Pot is the method I prefer~hands down. The IP makes any old gal a true Southern cook (as far as greens are concerned).
Of all the things I love about my Instant Pot, being able to whip up a “mess of greens” in less than an hour is at the top of the list.
Bagged greens are readily available, which I prefer to the more painstaking task of making greens from fresh, whole collards or turnips. The bagged greens are ready to throw directly into the pot~no prep required.
The Instant pot method of making greens is a super simple two step process.
First, use the saute function to sauté the diced onion and bacon pieces in EVOO for about 5 minutes or until bacon is cooked.
Second, add the greens and broth; cook on high pressure for 3o minutes. To get to high pressure, turn the IP off (as it will still be on sauté). Press “manual” to get to pressure. Press “pressure” to choose low or high setting. Press + or – to move the time to minutes desired.
Third, when greens are cooked, the IP will switch to a warm countdown. The lid can be opened at any time or greens can stay in the IP until you are ready to serve them.
These greens are SO delicious and easy that you won’t believe it. You’ll never feel like you have to go to Cracker Barrel for good, Southern greens when you learn to make them yourself:-)
