Total Time: 


8 strips thick-cut bacon
1 (16-ounce) bag chopped collard greens
2 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon hot sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Spread the bacon out on the prepared sheet and bake until crisp, about 20 minutes. Chop and transfer to the Instant Pot, along with all of the rendered bacon fat.

Add the collards, chicken broth, vinegar, brown sugar, and hot sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover, select the manual option, and set the timer for 20 minutes. Release the pressure. When the steam stops, remove the lid. Serve hot.
