Instructions
  1. Cook bacon until crisp, then transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Reserve about 3 tbs bacon fat in the pan, discard the rest.
  2. Cook onion over medium-low until softened.
  3. Stir in garlic, pepper flakes, the pinch of sugar, and vinegar.
  4. Add about half the collard greens and stir until wilted slightly. Add bacon, broth, and remaining collard greens. Stir until evenly combined.
  5. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes. Stir and test the greens. Depending on the age of the leaves, they may need to cook longer to reach desired tenderness, up to 2 hours.
