Now, I am not a shame saying I can tear up me some good ole neck bones with lots of favor and very tender to the eat. I can pick them up and just love on them until they are all gone from the pot.
Neck bones are a great meat, and the cost is low and can go a long way. If you find them on sale , stock up on them. You can fix them so many ways.
1 large package of pork neckbones or beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 T seasoning salt and black pepper
Spices ( you can use what you like these are your bones)
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 piece cinnamon
3 dried ancho chillies
4-5 dried Thai chillies
3-4 bay leaves
1 teaspoon (tsp) cumin
2 mace florets
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp asafoetida powder
Clean neckbones, removing excess fat, veins and pulpy material. Wash, rinse and place in large pot. Add ingredients and cover with water, adding additional water until neckbones are tender. Let boil down until water is just about boiled out. These neckbones will cause your fingers to be sticky when eating, but you will lick them because it tastes so good.
