Back in the day, beef marrow bones were the food of choice for our caveman ancestors. They would use primitive tools to crack open the bones and suck out the delicious, nutritious marrow inside. Fast forward a few thousand years and we're still obsessed with these meaty treasures. So let's get to it!
- 4-6 beef marrow bones (ask your butcher to hook you up)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (extra-virgin, of course)
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
- 2-3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
- A handful of fresh parsley (chopped)
Preheat your oven to 425°F. Get your apron on and let's get cooking!
Place the beef marrow bones on a baking sheet and brush them with olive oil. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper and make sure they're well coated. If you're feeling extra adventurous, you can add some other herbs and spices to the mix.
Roast the beef marrow bones in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until they're crispy and golden brown. Keep an eye on them, because you don't want them to overcook.
In the meantime, let's make the garlic and parsley topping. Heat a small pan over medium heat and add a splash of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped garlic and sauté for a minute or two until it's fragrant. Then, remove from heat and add the chopped parsley.
When the beef marrow bones are done roasting, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Then, use a small spoon to scoop out the delicious marrow from the bones and put it in a bowl.
Top the beef marrow with the garlic and parsley mixture and serve it up with your favorite crusty bread. Dip the bread into the beef marrow and enjoy the meaty, savory goodness.
