"Meaty neck bones and fresh dry beans are best for this one. If done correctly meat should fall off the bones. Great over rice." — CRB

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 in 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!
I'm so sorry, but this was not good for us. I followed the directions exactly, and the flavor was okay. The meat fell off the bones all right, but then we had a mess of lima beans, meat and tiny bones all mixed together. Did I do something wrong?
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 seasonings worked together perfectly. Not a lot of meat but lots of meaty flavor. Rice, salad--easy dinner.
This was very good - family loved it. The only thing I would change is to cut back on the sage due to personal preference. Thanks for posting.
I am going to try this next time with pork short ribs.I cut the cayenne pepper down to 1/2 teaspoon .1 Tablespoon is too much for my family. Make sure you soak the lima beans for at least 12 hours otherwise some will still be dry and solid.
I am not rating this a 5 star because I made so many modifications I didn't think it would be fair but nonetheless I used this recipe as a baseline and made a similar dish with what I had that was wonderful. I made this using a bag of frozen lima beans, 4 large slices of Country ham as well as a packet of Country ham bouillon, minced garlic, minced onions, lots of pepper a dash of salt and some italian seasonings. I cooked the country ham then broke it into pieces in the skillet on the stove. I then added the bag of frozen lima beans, all of the seasonings and 2 cups of water. I brought this to a boil and then simmered it on low for about 35 minutes and it was wonderful. Hope this helps.
I made it as directed. Not good, not bad.
