Bone marrow is a prized and creamy food that we find in the middle of long bones like the femur or the humerus. It’s composed mostly of fat with a high amount of fat soluble vitamins and is an item that is really highly valued by all traditional cultures over the world. If you give marrow to your cat or your dog, he’ll go crazy for it.
The taste is very pleasing and most people like it right away. Most kids also enjoy it very much. A lot of people in the Paleo diet circles talk about cooking with bones by making stock or eating the marrow, but most people don’t really know what to buy and how to prepare it. It’s actually one of the simplest things to prepare and a good choice to impress guests while being sure you won’t mess it up because it’s so quick and simple.
I suggest you serve it with a light salad with a lemon based vinaigrette to cut through the richness of the marrow. The most popular animal for its marrow is beef because of the big size of its bones, but if you have access to wild game meat like deer, elk or caribou, it’s also an excellent choice. Your butcher or local farmer should already make it easy for you since they don’t expect you to start using a saw in your kitchen. They will basically cut it to make 3 inch long pieces.
Now for the bone marrow recipe. Serves 4 people.
