How To Make broccoli greens

  • 1
    In your cast iron skillet, caramelize the onion in the bacon grease. Meanwhile, stack and roll a handful of leaves, cut lengthwise once and then chop (1/2") crosswise.
  • 2
    Remove the onion to the side, dump all of your leaves into the skillet, stir until they begin to wilt, reduce heat, add 1/2-3/4 C of water and cover. Stir every two to three minutes. When they are tender enough for your liking, add the garlic, onion and steak seasoning (here in SET, we use TexJoy). Remove from heat.
