  7. 1 (32-ounce) carton chicken broth
  8. 12 cups chopped stemmed collard greens
  9. 2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
  10. 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  11. 3 cups pulled smoked pork
  12. 1 (16-ounce) can baked beans, drained
  13. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  14. ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Spray a 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove vegetables using a slotted spoon.
  3. Melt butter in pot over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Gradually stir in broth; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in greens, brown sugar, and vinegar; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in vegetables, pork, beans, salt, and red pepper; cook mixture just until it comes to a simmer. Pour mixture into prepared pan, and top with prepared Cornmeal Buttermilk Piecrust. Cut decorative slits into crust to let steam escape. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water; brush onto crust.
  4. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
