Is it the perfect pork neck?

Pork neck or collar is a fairly underrated meat. It has a slightly higher fat content, but that’s what makes it so tasty and perfect for roasting in the oven, as the wonderful fat is rendered into a delicious sauce that you can use when serving. I roast the pork neck on a base of onions and add some potatoes in the middle of the baking process. Have a good cooking! Enjoy your roasted pork neck!


  • 3 pounds (1,5 kg) whole pork neck or collar
  • 3 pounds (1,5 kg) potatoes
  • 4 bigger onion
  • 2×150 ml quality dark beer
  • 2 tsp of paprika
  • 1 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 200 g sliced bacon
  • salt, pepper, oregano, olive oil for potatoes


  1. Make about 10 deep, even, vertical cuts throughout the meat. Make sure that the lower part is not cut through. Place in a deep baking tray.
  2. Mix the spices with the mustard and olive oil and 150 ml dark beer. Pour this mixture over the meat and massage all sides and cuts with the sauce. Cover the meat with cling film and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
  3. Remove the marinated meat from the baking tray. Place the sliced onions over the remaining marinade and place the meat back on top. Place 1-1 slice of bacon in each cut and secure the sides of the meat with toothpicks. Drizzle with another 150 ml dark beer, cover with aluminum foil and bake at 390°F (200°C) for 90 minutes.
  4. Cut the potatoes into large columns and season with salt, pepper and oregano. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Place them on the side of the roasting meat. Bake uncovered for another 50 minutes.
  5. Serve the sliced pork neck with baked onions and potatoes. Enjoy your meal!
