Creamy Brown Rice, Braised Greens, Pork Sausage

Creamy Brown Rice with Greens and Pork

Two slices bacon, cut in one inch lengths
Half pound spicy Italian sausage
One sweet onion, diced
Six garlic cloves, sliced
One bunch mustard or turnip greens, cut in one inch strips
One tablespoon honey 

Three cups water
Two cups chicken stock
Half cup brown rice 

In a heavy bottom pot begin to render the bacon.  After 5 minutes add the sausage and break up into small chunks and brown.  Sautee the onion and garlic over the meat until soft then stir in greens.  Add honey, liquid and rice then bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and cook uncovered for an hour and half or until the rice has begun to break down.  Lastly, season with salt, black pepper and tobacco sauce to taste.  Serves as a meal for two or a side dish for four. 

Brown rice (or "hulled rice") is unmilled or partly milled rice, a kind of whole, natural grain. It has a mild nutty flavor, is chewier and more nutritious than white rice.
