Beef neck bones are a Southern staple recipe. I couldn't find a recipe online, so I created this one on my own by pulling from some of my favorite oxtail, roast, and pork neck bone recipes. Turned out yummy so I thought I'd share. Serve over steamed rice and peas or mashed potatoes.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat slow cooker to High.

  • Clean neck bones and remove any excess fat. Season bones with cumin, allspice, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and salt; dust with 1/4 cup flour.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and add seasoned neck bones; cook until bones begin to brown, about 1 minute per side.

  • Transfer neck bones and drippings to the preheated slow cooker; add beef broth and onion.

  • Cook on High for 1 hour. Reduce heat to Low and cook 4 to 6 hours.

  • Transfer neck bones to a dish. Sprinkle remaining flour into the slow cooker and stir well. Return neck bones to slow cooker. Let stand until gravy thickens, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

For thicker gravy, increase the amount of flour added to the neck bone drippings. Pork neck bones can be used in place of beef neck bones.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I followed the recipe to the almost letter on the ingredients, only thing I had a small Chuck steak so I added it to the crock pot with the neck bones and I didn't have allspice so I used 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Turned out great, my husband has asked me to make it again as soon as possible. I served it over mashed potatoes, leftovers i served over rice,both delious. Read More
