    Enjoyed but next time will substitute bacon grease for olive oil and cut it back a little. Fresh garlic didn’ t add enough flavor for us so next time will also add some dry roasted garlic. Insta pot took 15 minutes fantastic!

    Can you use collard greens for the greens? I grow lots of collards. I think i would use bacon grease with the collards which is my usual way of cooking them. Adding the potatoes sounds very good.

    Potatoes turned to mush. Too much garlic. I would cook gornonly 10-12 minutes and use half garlic. Otherwise good.
