Ham & Braised Greens
Ham and braised greens are a staple in the South. Make a version of greens, no eggs, and ham by piling them onto a freshly-baked buttermilk biscuit. Any kind of hearty greens will work in this recipe, so use a combination of whatever you like, or is available.
Sauté ham in two batches in oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat until golden brown on both sides; transfer to a plate.
Stir in water and collards, cover, and cook 3 minutes. Stir in mustard greens, cover, and cook 3 minutes. Stir in beet greens, cover, and cook 3 minutes more. Pour any drippings from the plate of ham into the pan, then season greens with salt and black pepper; serve with ham slices.
The ribs from hearty greens are tough and won’t cook as quickly as the leaves, so cut along either side of the ribs to remove them.
