This recipe is unforgettable. Quick, Simple, and minimum mess, the pork inside as well as the collard green on the outside, blew my mind. D-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s beyond belief


1 large bunch collard greens
1 pound ground pork
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons red chili flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
Special equipment: 8 by 8-inch baking dish


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the collards for 3 to 4 minutes until soft and pliable. Drain and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together pork, salt, cumin, chili flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, and nutmeg in a bowl. Divide into 4 sections to form oblong patties. Wrap each patty in 4 collard leaves. Place patties seam side down in the baking dish and add enough stock to reach 1/4 of the way up the stuffed greens. Cover with heavy-duty aluminum foil and bake until pork is cooked through, about 35 minutes

Tastes like cabbage rolls & much easier to make.


1 medium cabbage (shredded)
½ pound ground beef
½ pound ground pork
1 cup yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 cup cooked rice


1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
8 ounces tomato sauce
10 ounces condensed tomato soup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg,
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper, to taste


Saute onion and garlic in a large skillet for about a minute. Add meat and cook, stirring often, until meat is no longer pink. Drain well and let cool to room temperature. When meat has cooled add egg, milk and rice.
Meanwhile, remove tough outer leaves from cabbage & remove core. Shred cabbage. Saute the cabbage in the same skillet used before.
In a large bowl mix all the sauce ingredients together. Place some of this mixture in the bottom of a sprayed 10x13 casserole dish so you have a nice layer of sauce. Try not to use more than half though.
Layer half the cabbage on top of the sauce. Layer all the meat on top of the cabbage. Top with remaining cabbage and then finish by pouring all the remaining sauce on top.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until everything is hot and bubbly
Whoever finds the bay leaf is the lucky one! Just do not eat it!
