This delicious lamb neck stew is so easy to put together, and then all you have to do is leave it to cook. Lamb neck is a fabulously underrated and inexpensive cut of lamb. It is a tough cut that requires a very long, slow cooking time. It may look as though there isn’t much meat, but it does yield a surprisingly generous amount once every scrap is tender.
