“Meaty neck bones and fresh dry beans are best for this one. If done correctly meat should fall off the bones. Great over rice.” - by CRB
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- Combine the garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, sage, nutmeg, seasoned salt, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub 3/4 of this mixture into the pork neck bones; set the neck bones and remaining seasoning aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the neck bones; reduce heat to low, and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour, adding water as needed to keep the meat and vegetables from scorching.
- Meanwhile, place the lima beans into a large pot and pour in 8 cups of water; bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, turn off the heat, cover, and let stand 1 hour.
- After the beans have stood for 1 hour, drain and rinse. Return the beans to the pot, and pour in 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then stir in the pork and vegetables, and the remaining spice mixture. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the lima beans are tender, and the pork is falling off the bones, about 30 minutes.

"I've been cooking great dishes for the past 30 years, and I have to say without a doubt, this is one of the best country meals I have ever had. I didn't have dry limas, so I used a frozen pack I had ..." See morein the freezer, and waited until the neck bones were tender before adding them. I was concerned about how I would like the sage and netmeg, but they weren't overwhelming in flavor, but mildly blended in with everything else. This is a keeper!"
"Never having cooked pork neck bones before, I had no idea what to expect. This was a delicious dinner--I used smoked paprika and other spices for the seasoned salt--and the sage, nutmeg, and other sea..." See moresonings worked together perfectly. Not a lot of meat but lots of meaty flavor. Rice, salad--easy dinner."
