Marrow Bones

Post by cuchulainn » Tue Jun 19, 2018 4:10 pm

What is the best way to serve them?

I was planning on roasting them to spread on toast.

Roasted is good.

I also like them a lot in a Filipino soup called bulalo. (Served with rice, of course)

I had them with tortillas in Mexico City a few weeks ago. They were very good.

The thinly sliced radish and the cherry tomato went well with it. The drizzles on the plate were cilantro and the other one was balsamic. Both were good matches. I could have done without the blobs of aoli or mayo or whatever those ones were. I can no longer remember what those thin crispy wafery things were but you could skip them.
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

Balsamic vinegar would complement the fat.

Since marrow is very fatty I don't know why anyone would want mayo or aoili with that. I think people here have the right idea - acidic (balsamic vinegar! Yes!) and/or crunchy veg nibbles like radishes.

Roasted garlic for more spreading on toast would be good too.

You could also have a little bit of roasted veges like red peppers, mushrooms, leeks, eggplant on the plate, each seasoned separately so it doesn't all get too same-samey. Get some herbs in there. Alternatively, any of those could be made into tasty spreads by running through the blender.

I am kind of like Jess, although I would say the stock pot. I have never quite understood what is so exciting about bone marrow.

Marrow in rhe stock pot will melt awayand get skimmed off as fat. Solid roasted marrow is like an unctous, meaty tasting spread. Also good sliced on lean cuts like fillet, along with sauce.

MM, I have had it the way you describe, I have just never been wowed. It is ok, for me, just not amazing.

slow cooker for about 48 hours, but for that kind of wait and fucking around, you'll be happier with oxtail in a third the time. I've done them in a bolognaise sauce, but to not much effect.

To get them like in a 5* restaurant like R'evolution in New Orleans does them, you need a super high heat restaurant overhead grill.

Mostly, it's 2 bites that feel like snot in your mouth and a merely passable whiff of unami. Like oxtail, it's another thing they used to sell for pennies (or even just give you) that now costs real meat prices. For novelty purposes only.

Stock pot. For the flavour they impart. Wouldn't personally eat them.
