Neck bones are inexpensive and easy to cook. But don't be mistaken, this meat is packed with flavor and taste great. Growing up down south, this inexpensive meat and rice meal was a family favorite, both worked well on a tight budget. I ate this meat so much that I lost the taste for this dish for a while.
But guess what? I got my taste for neckbones back again.
Nowadays, most grocery stores and supermarket are making available smoked neckbones just like those delicious smoked ham hocks. I'll give you my ham hocks recipe later on, that is if you behave yourself.
Over the years my mother adapted the basic neckbone and rice recipe. This recipe calls for green beans and white potatoes to be cooked up with the meat and served on a bed of rice. I definitely prefer the adaptation over the basic recipe. Here is the recipe for your enjoyment.
Cookware and Utensils:
Remember, the key to great cooking is being prepared and to use quality ingredients.

Serve your neckbones, green beans and potatoes on a bed of rice with corn bread. Again, this recipe will work well with pork neckbones, as well as beef neck bones.
