Jamaican Brown Stewed Turkey Neck

Turkey Neck has grown in popularity over the years. It is fairly cheap and is a good source of protein. I try to cook t in many different ways such as curried and it makes a delicious "Pulled Turkey Neck" sandwich. The meat shop normally sells it pre-cut which is good because the bone is tough. To clean it you need to wash in vinegar or lime juice and water. 
Here is a simple recipe for a Stewed Turkey Neck.

 Servings 8


1 turkey neck, cut up (this is hard to do at home so buy precut pieces)
Salt and pepper as needed

1 medium onion, cut into eighths
8 oz carrots, large dice
14 ozs diced tomatoes, undrained
10 ozs water
2 chicken bouillion cubes
4 ozs ketchup or 8 ozs tomato sauce
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar, optional
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 
4 pimento berries, cracked 
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 lb potatoes cut into fourths
 Season the turkey neck with salt and pepper. 
Brown the meat in vegetable oil. 
Drain excess oil. Add flour and cook for about 5 minutes while stirring. 
Add all the other ingredients to pot along with turkey neck.
 Cover and simmer for about 11/2-2 hours until meat is tender and falls off the bone (this step can be done in a pressure cooker or slow cooker)
Adjust seasoning as needed. Serve with hot buttered rice or rice and peas and a side salad.
