A delicious way to cook lamb necks
Not sure what to do with lamb necks? Here’s a really easy to prepare meal!
I cringe at how many times I fed them to my dogs in the past, and whilst meaty bones are wonderful for them, I missed out on lots of delicious meals. So when we first had lamb neck chops I looked up lots of different recipes, and now I use whatever I have in the pantry, fridge and garden, and these slow cooked lamb necks have been a winner for the whole family, and a huge bonus, there’s little preparation for a nutritious and tasty meal.
Using a minimum of 500g to 1kg of pasture raised lamb neck chops, collect some of your favourite flavours and prepare this at least 8-12 hours before your meal. I’d love to hear what you think of this dish, maybe you got lamb neck chops in your pasture raised lamb box from us, or you’ve been eyeing them off at the local butchers? Either way, give them a go, its a delicious way to eat nose to tail.
