The Luxury of Roasted Bone Marrow

There is a decadence to roasted bone marrow. It is a restaurant classic, being served as an appetizer with some scrumptious bread, or as an elegant side to a steak.

But, roasted bone marrow is not something that people typically make at home.

It has often been thought of as a dish that is better left to the professionals. Truth is, it’s not that complicated and you will find out that you can achieve this luxurious flavor at home pretty easily.

Where Can I Even Find Bones for Bone Marrow?

It’s true that beef bones aren’t always available at your local grocery store. Though, you may be lucky and some markets may have them available regularly.

But, most any butcher shop should be able to get you some bones full of marrow.

It may be a good idea to call ahead, though, so they can get it ready for you or they might be sold out.

Be sure to ask how they are cut, as sometimes bones are cut cylindrically which is great for a braise, but to scoop out the marrow easily a lengthwise cut is ideal.

Bone Marrow, the International Favorite

Roasting bone marrow sounds like something only the French would think up. Surprisingly bone marrow is a valued ingredient all over the world.

In Italy it is centre stage in the classic dish ossobucco. In Vietnamese cuisine, bone marrow is an essential flavor base to the national dish, phó. Everywhere from Nepal to India, bone marrow is a widely loved and appreciated ingredient.
