6 pounds fresh collard greens, tough stalks and ribs removed and leaves roughly torn to bite-sized pieces

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

1 cup tarragon vinegar 

1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced 

1 cup pulled pork 

4 cups pork broth 


  1. Add the collard greens, sugar, vinegar, onion, pulled pork, pork broth and 1-gallon cold water to a stock pot.
  2. Bring the liquid to a rolling boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the greens are very soft and tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to divide the collards among bowls and serve hot.
