  • Next, add in your chopped onions and garlic clove.
  • Once the liquid begins to boil, whisk in a dash of flour to help thicken. You can also try my gravy recipe. It tastes amazing with this recipe.
  • Place a lid onto your neck bones, then turn to medium for 2 hours.

Tip: Check your neck bones often to ensure the water isn’t boiled down. If so, just add enough water to cover the bottom of the pot. This will prevent them from burning.

  • Once they have boiled, add them to any side dish you choose. I love enjoying my neck bones with rice and cabbage.

- Simple, easy, and straight to the point. Just grab your neck bones out of the fridge and pop it into the oven for 1 minute or until it reaches your desired temperature.
