Where Can I Find Bones For Roasting?
Beef bones are actually pretty plentiful. I mean, considering the amount of beef that is sold, something has to be done with all of those bones. Sometimes you can luck out at your local grocery store, especially if you have a quality one. But, you may have to be a little more resourceful.
Local butcher shops are usually the best bet for getting some beef bones. It is a good idea to call ahead and request them as the butcher may have plans for them, or someone else may have claimed them. But, there is a good chance that they can get them for you and have them prepared for roasting by the time you pick them up.
I Just Want To Say
This is a dish worth putting together and giving yourself a treat unlike any other.
Decadent and rich, roasted bone marrow goes well with sweet, plump sliced tomatoes which offer a much-needed acidity to cut through all that glorious fattiness.
- 4 bone marrow halves
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 teaspoons (10 ml) lemon juice
- 1/2 tomato, sliced (to serve with)
- 1 cup salad greens
- Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C).
- Prepare the bones by placing them on a foil lined baking tray (as the fat renders when the marrow cooks).
- Bake for 20 minutes (longer if the bones are thicker). The marrow will be browned and slightly bubbling. And some of the fat will have rendered and flowed off.
- To serve, sprinkle salt and pepper over the marrow and drizzle some lemon juice.
- Serve with tomato slices and a green side salad.
