Famous Dave’s Broccoli Salad

Famous Dave’s Broccoli Salad

I’ve never had the opportunity to eat @ Famous Dave. But I saw this on the Food Channel and I just had to try this. The info what was given on the tv show and a little but of my own tasting and testing this is what I came up with. The salad dressing is actually the same way my mother used to make, home made salad dressing. On the Tv show no mustard was used and peanuts were used instead of the walnuts.

Southern Mustard Greens

Southern Mustard Greens

Mustard Greens are related to kale, cabbage, and collard greens, they are the peppery leafy greens of the mustard plant and are used frequently in Soul food, Chinese, Japanese, and Indian cooking.
 
Ingredients
  • 1 bag mustard greens (1lb) bag
  • 1 smoked ham hock
  • 1 onion
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp chicken base
  • 1 box chicken broth
 
Instructions
  1. Put the smoked ham hock in the pot with 1 box of chicken broth. Add the minced onion, garlic, celery seeds, sugar, red pepper flakes and the chicken base. Cook on medium for about 15 minutes then add the mustard greens. This may look like a lot of greens, but these greens will cook down a lot. Cook for about 1 hour on medium. Check occasionally if you still have enough liquid in the pot, if not add some water or chicken broth. you do want plenty of potlikker,or also called pot liquor. For those–like me–who didn’t grow up with it and don’t know it, potlikker is the “broth” in the pot from  cooking of the greens.
  2. Take out the smoked ham hock and shred the meat, add back to the pot, and serve.
