  • 3 lb Pork Shoulder (Whole)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/2 tsp, ground Oregano
  • 0 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 1/2 lb Collards
  • 1 large Onions
  • 4 clove Garlic
  • 0 29/48 each Bay Leaf
  • 3 cup Hominy (White, Canned)
  • 1 14.5 oz can Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 14 1/2 fl oz Tap Water


  1. Dice the pork into 1/2-1-inch pieces.  Combine salt, pepper and oregano in a large bowl. Add pork and toss to coat.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and brown on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Slice the onion and mince the garlic.  Layer one-third of the greens, half of the white onion, garlic, bay leaf, half of the hominy and half of the meat in a 5-quart slow cooker. Repeat, ending with greens.
  4. Pour in broth and water. Cover and cook until pork is tender, about 6 hours on low.  Serve with hot pepper vinegar, if using.

Cooking Tip

This is a wonderful recipe to make ahead and freeze in individual portions.  Simply add to a soup pot to reheat from frozen over low-medium heat with a little water.
