The name of this South American dish comes from the technique of rolling the collard leaves tightly together to make slicing easier.
3 pounds collards or kale
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 bacon slices, finely diced
8 cups chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
How to Make It
Remove stems from collards. Wash and pat dry. Stack 4 or 5 collard leaves together, and roll up holding tightly. Slice thinly to equal 32 cups.
Heat oil in a large Dutch oven until hot. Add bacon; sauté 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes. Add collards in 4 batches; cook 1 minute after each addition, stirring frequently. Cook an additional 25 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add salt, pepper, and sauce; cook 2 minutes.
