3. Add salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 1 hour.

6. Continue to cook the mixture for another 1 1/2 hours, or until the chitlins are tender.

Trying international cuisine is a passion of mine, and this dish had so many layers to it. The spices was good, though I wish the flavors were a bit more intense.

I cooked with similar ingredients back home but never like this. This was new to me, especially the part with the hog maws. Would love to see a tip for making the greens a bit spicier next time.

Absolutely nailed the soul food vibe with this one. Cleaning the maws and chitlins takes a bit, but it's worth it.

The collard greens? Chef's kiss. It's like a hug in a bowl.

I gave it a 5
