Warm the oil in a large pot over medium heat, add the onion, and cook until the onion has some color.
Add the collards and sauté until they are a bit limp, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and cook down. Add the sorghum, stock, 2 cups water, the ham hock, salt, and red pepper flakes. Cook, covered, for about 2 hours, or until the collards are tender. Add the butter and reserve warm until ready to serve.
