Kale with Bacon and Onions

2 slices center-cut bacon, coarsely
chopped (or two teaspoons olive oil)
¼ - ½ cup water
Wash kale, remove stems, and coarsely chop.
Sauté onion and bacon (or olive oil if not using bacon) in a large pan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and onions are soft, about 10 minutes.
Remove bacon and onions from pan, set aside.
Add kale to a hot pan, pour in water, and cover. Steam kale until desired tenderness is reached (6-8 minutes), stirring occasionally.
Stir in bacon and onions, heat through and serve.
