Beef Marrow Bones

Bada Bing Oct 13, 2013 12:57 PM

I just found a little pack of 6 or so beef bones cut crosswise into about 1"/2cm thickness. I thought I'd try prepping them so as to use the marrow as a spread on crusty bread. But I'm new to this one. I don't know if or how they should be seasoned with salt and/or herbs prior to roasting. Do they dry-roast or do you use a water element somehow? And how long do they cook, and at what temperature? How do you know when marrow is "done"?

      When the marrow starts to get translucent, you are getting close. A fine line between ready and flowing out when you pick them up.

      I have only had them with coarse salt and crusty or toasted bread.

        Some may have a better method- but dry roasting in a hot oven for a surprisingly short amount of time is all that's needed.

        Here's a wonderful sounding prep:
