Kale/Grünkohl recipes pretty please?

Okay; I need some Euro-cuisine-advice.

Re: Stewed Kale recipe of German origin
Growing up I remember it being called something like:
"Grünkohlgericht mit Pinkel, Potatoes and Speck"

- Purchased a Can of the Kale (or Grünkohl)
- Stew it with Speck (or Bacon) and onions (in this case I also used a ham hawk)

Now: I remember the end-result being really flavourful and salty. I cooked this up and it turned out HORRIBLE! Really bland and lacking of authenticity.

[My papa always made this, but he's on vacation right now and I can't get a hold of him.]

Any suggestions?
What am I missing?
Or lordy this isn't right!
