  • 20 ounces Collard greens or turnip greens stem removed and roughly chopped
  • 6 ounces Salt pork or bacon diced into about 1/4-inch pieces (can substitute 6-8 slices thick cut bacon)
  • 1 cup Chicken broth
  • ½ cup Onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons White vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Set Instant Pot to SAUTE and add salt pork or bacon, and onions, cooking until the pork begins to crisp and the onions are softened.
  • Pour chicken broth into the pot and deglaze the bottle of the pan making sure to get up the browned bits. Press CANCEL To stop the saute function.
  • Add the vinegar and the pack in the greens so the pot is about ⅔ of the way full.
  • Lock the lid in place and turn the valve to SEALING. Set to HIGH PRESSURE for 10 minutes.
  • When the timer goes off do a quick release by turning the valve to VENTING and let all of the pressure out.
  • Remove the lid, stir the contents of the pot to mix everything together and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy!
