1/4 cup rice wine or sherry

3 tablespoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder

2 1/2 pounds collard green, tough stems discarded, washed, shaken dry to remove excess water, and coarsely chopped

Rice vinegar


  1. Bring rice wine, soy sauce, sugar, five-spice powder, and 1/4 cup water to a boil in a large casserole or Dutch oven. Add the damp greens. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer, stirring once or twice, until the greens are very tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove the cover and simmer until the greens are no longer soupy, 3 to 4 minutes. Adjust the seasoning, adding rice vinegar to taste. Serve immediately.
