This extremely delicious yet simple dish with a succulent meaty flavour is truly an all-rounder that is made to please all the meat lovers out there. It can be served as an appetizer or a main course. I prefer to serve it on toasted slices of baguette, rubbed with some garlic and some pickles on a side to cut the richness of the marrow and reset the palate.

Several benefits of bone marrow:

  • The most natural and efficient source of collagen. Great for joints and bones, speeds up recovery. Great for skin.
  • Positive effect on the brain. Helps prevent many serious and dangerous conditions related to brain activity.
  • Great source of energy
  • Boosts immunity system
  • Great source of vitamins, protein etc.

An important tip when making this dish is to soak the bone marrow in very salty water for 24-48 hours, changing the water every 12 hours. This step will help remove the impurities from the bone marrow.

Method of Preparation

  • Soak the bone marrow in very salty water 24-48 hours, change the water every 12 hours (for this dish you need to plan in advance)
  • Pat dry the soaked bone marrow with paper towels. Make sure they are completely dry. Preheat the oven to 200°C

  • Roast the bone marrow for 15 minutes at 200°C (do not roast longer than that or at a higher temperature, as the bone marrow will melt)
  • Cut a few pieces of baguette bread (2-3 should be enough for 1 bone marrow)
  • Spread unsalted butter on each side of the bread pieces and toast until golden brown on a skillet/griddle
  • Take out the bone marrow and let it cool for a couple of minutes. Puncture the bone marrow with a wooden stick to see if it is cooked, there should be no resistance
  • Cut garlic cloves in half, rub bread pieces with garlic
  • Spread the bone marrow on bread pieces, sprinkle with dried oregano and serve with pickles on aside. Pickles will cut the richness of the marrow and reset the palate.
