Last updated on February 14th, 2022 at 12:26 pm

This homemade Roasted Pork Neck Bones recipe is not only easy to make, but it is also delicious and healthy too! Made with pork neck bones that have been marinated in various spices, and then roasted to perfection until juicy and tender. Served this dish with a side of salad and roasted sweet potatoes, you and the whole family won’t get enough of these mouth-watering Roasted Pork Neck Bones. 

This recipe is very simple and easy to make. You will first need a couple of seasoning blends from Noubess.com. The seasonings that give this dish its authentic yet delicious flavor are Noubess Steak Seasoning and Noubess BBQ Seasoning. The melange or combination of these two seasonings is superbly paired with a slightly smoky flavor.

Only two other ingredients are needed besides the pork neck bones and seasoning blends; they are olive oil, and lemon pepper seasoning. All the ingredients blend together beautifully to create this appetizing dish.

Pork neck bones are not the preferred choice of many people to cook because there are more bones than meat. On the contrary, there is plenty of meat. With a little patience, you will be surprised at the flavors. The tender meat attached to the bones is like magic in your mouth. 

Before we go into making this delicious dish, I want to share a little bit of information. Pork neck bones are not only a thing of the South (talking about the south region of the United States). They are also a thing in Caribbean culture. We love our pork neck bones in legumes, as some of you might call it, vegetables and meat stew.

How to make this easy Roasted Pork Neck Bones Recipe

This recipe is for six pounds of pork neck bones. Here’s a list of ingredients you will need to make the recipe.

  • Pork Neck Bones
  • Olive Oil
  • Noubess Steak Seasoning, No Salt
  • Noubess BBQ Seasoning
  • Lemon Pepper Seasoning

Not sure where to find pork neck bones? Have you checked the meat department at your local supermarket? You may have missed it if you are always buying other types of pork cuts. Take a closer look, and you will save money.

Here are the instructions:

  • Let’s prep the meat first. Clean the meat the way you normally do. I usually clean my meat with lime, lemon, or vinegar. Cut the lime or lemon in half. Rub the lemon or lime pices on every piece of meat. If you are using vinegar, give the meat a gentle wash with the vinegar mixed with water and then rinse.
  • Remove any excess fat and rinse the meat thoroughly. Pat dry the pork neck bones with paper towels and place them in a bowl.
  • Add seasoning blends and olive oil.
  • (You need to use your hands for this part.) With both hands, massage every piece and make sure they are well coated with the seasonings blend and oil.
  • Let the meat marinate for at least 1 hour before roasting. This will help the flavors of the seasonings to penetrate the meat.
  • Prepare a baking sheet with a rack. Place the pork neck bones pieces on the rack, and roast in a 350 to 375 degrees Fahrenheit preheated oven for at least 2 hours and 45 minutes. (350 degrees preferrably depending on the oven temperature. And depending on the the size of the pork neck bones, either set the oven temperature at 350 or 375 degrees.)
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately with vegetables and grains.
  • Want a sauce to serve the roasted meat? Make Creole Sauce serve with the meat and other dishes and enjoy!

Tips and Notes

  • To purchase pork neck bones, check the meat section of the supermarket. The pre-packaged pork meat should be where all the other pork cuts are.
  • Make sure the pork is fully thawed before prepping. This will ensure proper cooking and the seasoning will stick on the meat.
  • The seasoning combination is a delicious basic blend if you want to baste the pork with barbecue sauce. The taste is right on! You can even use another type of sauce if you like. For example, tamarind sauce, or a sweet and spicy store-bought meat sauce is marvelous with this recipe.
  • It is best to use a baking sheet with a rack so the pieces not only cook evenly but there’s no need to turn them over.
  • Place the pan in the middle of the oven to ensure proper heat circulation inside the oven while the pork is cooking.
  • I would not suggest adding additional salt because Noubess BBQ contains salt and most lemon pepper season also contain salt. Make sure you read the nutrition and product description labels.

  1. Followed your procedure except for time in the oven. I went 2 hours. Plenty. Very tender. And not having your spice set I used Ms Mary’s Special Seasoning: a blend of brown sugar, paprika, black pepper, chili powder, garlic powder & onion powder. It’s made by Gann Farms in McLeanville, NC. Once ready for the oven I also added a dusting of Greek Sea Salt & fresh ground black pepper. Close to being done I brushed with a GoChuJang Korean hot & sweet sauce. The meat fell off the bones and was succulent and delicious. I’ll do this again.

    1. Wow! This sounds so delicious. Pork necks’ bones sizes are different, and the cooking time makes it difficult at times. But I am glad you tried it with different spices. Great flavor!

  2. 5 stars
    I thought about what Tony said and the 2hr and 45min at 375 seemed too long or too hot. So I set my oven at 350 and watched it closely . After 1hr 15min they were done and tasty. Either the time or the temp is wrong. Maybe a typo..

    1. Not all ovens are manufactured the same. So we will definitely take that into account and update the instructions. Thank you for trying out the recipe.
