You do like greens? Add beer. You’ll like them even more.

Bacon couldn’t hurt either.

Beer Braised Greens

1 medium-large onion

3 cloves garlic

1 bottle beer

1-2 cups stock or water

2 bunches greens, washed and chopped

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

salt to taste

Heat a pan over medium heat. Chop up the onion and saute for five minutes or until softened. Mince the garlic and add to the pan, cooking for 30 seconds-1 minute.

Add the remaining ingredients to the pan, cover with a lid and allow to come to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to simmer until the greens are cooked through to your liking. This could be as little as a half hour or up to two hours. Enjoy your beer drenched greens!
