Neck bones are great with greens or cabbage. They can be baked or boiled, this recipe can be fixed either way. It depends upon how much attention you want to give the dish. I think this is one of this meals that takes you back to your mother's kitchen.

  • Sprinkle 3/4 of the onion and garlic into the bottom of a roasting pan; pour in the vinegar and water. Season the neck bones with salt and pepper and place into the roasting pan. Sprinkle the remaining onion and garlic over the neck bones; cover the roasting pan tightly with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours, basting every 30 minutes. Be sure to recover the foil every time you baste. After 2 hours, remove the foil and continue baking until the neck bones are golden brown, about 45 minutes.

Taste just like the South!!! Add a little cayenne green onions and a piece or two of bell pepper for the "Slap Yo' Mama" Louisiana flair! Read More

This was my first time ever cooking neck bones and I must say that the outcome was a success thanks to this recipe! I really like this method of cooking neck bones v/s boiling them. Normally, I follow the recipe as written but I made the following changes to suit my taste: I used three lbs. of neck bones seasoned with Lawry's seasoning salt, black pepper & Goya adobo seasoning, one onion, four cloves garlic, 1/2 c water & 2 TBSP vinegar. I didn't baste the neck bones but after 2 hrs I added 1/4 c water, cooked 30 mins covered and removed foil during last 30 mins. The neck bones were tender and in tact. I'll definitely use this recipe again but will probably use less garlic or just omit it next time - personal taste. This recipe is a keeper and Kudos to Keryne for sharing!!!!! Read More

My family enjoyed this recipe. The meat was very tender and the ingredients went well together. I added a pinch of cayenne to spice things up but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Very easy tasty and budget-friendly thank you for sharing! Read More

I never made neck bones before I tryed this recipe. They were soooo good! The onion helped to caramelize the neck bones as they roasted and they were very tasty! I also roasted potatoes and cabbage with this neck bone recipe. I will be making this dish again! Read More
