Neckbones, Green Beans and Potatoes

Recipe Ingredients:
  • 2 to 3 pounds pork or beef neckbones, small to medium sized with meat
  • 2 cups rice
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black Pepper
  • 1 can italian green beans
  • 1 can white potatoes
Cookware and Utensils:
  • 1 Dutch Oven or large boiling pot
Recipe Instructions:
Remember, the key to great cooking is being prepared and to use quality ingredients.
  1. You can typically find neckbones at your local grocery store in neighborhoods where blue collar workers shop. Don't expect to find them in upscale and well-established stores. Pick out neck bones that are small to medium sized with plenty of meat on the bones.
  2. Start off by rinsing your meat under running water. Add meat to a large pot or Dutch Oven. Cover Meat with about three inches of water. Bring water to a boil. Skim the foam from the meat once foam forms. If necessary remove meat, clean pot and add fresh water.
  3. Add cover to pot and reduce heat to simmer for about 1-1/2 hours. After simmering for 1-1/2 hours the meat should be tender. At this point add your canned green beans, white potatoes, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Simmer for an additional 20 minutes, until beans and potatoes are tender.
  4. Cook your rice according to the package instructions
