Mustard Greens is something I grew up eating. Greens are high in Nutrients, fiber and low in calories.

Back in the day when my grandmother would cook greens it would cook for hours.

Unfortunately as a busy mom, I have no time to cook anything for hours. But I am sharing my simple recipe for Mustard Greens. The greens are already triple cleaned and ready to cook.

This is a big short cut from the way my grandmother did. She would pick, cut, clean and prepare all the greens herself before cooking.

Typically Salt meat is what we use in our Mustard Greens but I am using the Clifty Farm Country Ham that they sent me.

  • Clifty Farms Ham
  • Slap Ya Mama
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Chicken Stock
  • Mustard Greens
  • Onion Powder
  • Smoked Paprika
  1. Dice the onions and Bell Peppers.
  2. Saute the onions and bell peppers in Olive Oil.
  3. Add water to a pot and add the desired amount of Clifty Farms Ham to the pot. Boil for about 15 minutes. The reason we do this is because it will take some of the salt out of the meat.
  4. Keep some of the water to add into the Mustard Greens.
  5. Add olive oil to pot and saute the mustard greens. Stirring often.
  6. Once lightly saute, add chicken stock. Stir.
  7. Add Chopped ham to the pot. Stir and cook on low - medium heat.
  8. Add 2 tbsp of chopped minced garlic. Stir.
  9. Add Smoked Paprika and Onion Powder. Stir.
  10. Ladel 3 scoops of water from the boiled ham into the pot with greens. Taste.
  11. Add a few dashes of slap ya mama for additional seasoning if needed. Stir.
  12. This next step is optional, I did this instead of adding salt. I added a 1/2 cup of the uncooked Clifty Farms country ham to the greens. Stir and cooked for an additional 10 minutes on low or until ham is cooked.
  13. Yum.
