Onion Smothered Greens

1 medium—large onion, roughly chopped

2 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon Olive or vegetable oil

3 teaspoons sugar

1/2 cup water or broth

About 8 cups or so of washed and chopped braising greens

Salt and fresh ground black pepper

Heat oil over high heat in a large pot.  Add the onion and sauté over medium to high heat until translucent.  Add sugar and continue to stir onions until they are caramelizing or turning golden brown in color.  Add the garlic and greens.  Stir until greens are wilted.  Add the water or broth, cover the pot tightly and simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes or until greens are tender.  Be sure the liquid does not evaporate completely!  Dress with a little butter or oil, salt and pepper or your favorite flavored vinegar.  For caramelizing onions, you’ll have much better luck by NOT using non-stick cook wear.  You may need to add a little more oil though to a stainless steel surface.
