As the name suggests beef neck is a cut taken from the neck. It is a very economical cut. Due to the tendons and bones found in the neck, it can be a rather tough cut if cooked quickly, but if braised or stewed low and slow, the meat will become tender.
How Can I Cook It?
Beef neck is a great winter-warmer cut. Usually, beef neck would be braised or stewed over low heat for a prolonged period, but this can be made easier with the use of a slow-cooker. If cooked low and slow, the meat will become soft and tender and the flavour becomes very intense.
