Marrow bones are generally the leg bones from either beef or veal. The marrow not only just boastes of its heavenly buttery taste but also offers various health benefits. This most nutrient-dense superfood contains a substantial amount of good fats and energy and provides an exceptional source of the omega-3 required for healthy brain development and anti-inflammation. It also contains minerals (iron, phosphorus, and trace amounts of thiamin and niacin), collagen, stem cells that turn into blood cells inside the body when ingested and a group of compounds called alkylglycerols that help boost and maintain our immune system. You can use marrow bones to make bone broth, or you can roast the bones and use the marrow the same way you would use butter -- spread it on toast, toss with vegetables or melt over the steak.

  • 1.5 kg Grass fed organic marrow bones (beef or veal)
  • 2 tsp Fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tsp Fresh thyme, chopped
  • Hawaiian black lava salt
  • Black peppercorn, crushed
  • Crusty bread, toasted (leave it out if doing keto)
  • Baby Romane salad leaves
  • 1 Red onion, sliced into rings
  • 2 tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 230C/450F. Place the bones in a baking dish. Finely chop the rosemary and thyme leaves. Sprinkle the chopped herbs over the marrow bones.
  2. Transfer them to the hot oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes until no longer pink inside. Meanwhile prepare the side salad and crusty bread if using.
  3. Combine the salad leaves, onion rings and chopped parsley in a small mixing bowl. Toast the bread until crunchy if using.
  4. After 15 minutes, check the bones. The marrow should be hot, with a soft and jelly-like consistency, but not liquid. You want to catch it before the marrow begins to "leak out" of the bones. Roast another five minutes if needed.
  5. Drizzle the salad with olive oil and white balsamic vinegar.
  6. Season the marrow with lava salt and freshly milled black pepper. Serve while still hot with salad and crusty bread if using. Use a spoon to scoop out the marrow and enjoy! Once you enjoy the marrow, save the bones and dripping to make bone broth. | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

I never roast marrow bones for some reason -- always a restaurant treat for me. I gotta start doing this! This looks great -- thanks.

We love roasted bone marrow - so rich and creamy! But I've never made it at home (we order it at our favorite local restaurant) - now I'm inspired to try!

I'm with you that bone marrow is so good for us, and what a great idea to bake it. I would love to taste what you have done with it, looks superb. I must look out for your Black Lava salt. Did you purchase it online? Thanks for sharing this brilliant recipe. Beautiful photos as always.Pauline.

Perfectly satisfied with marrow butter on crusty bread!

Raymund 17/11/20 22:47

Now that's my kind of dish! That would be perfect with your Pain de Mie

Ron 19/11/20 14:23

Angie, marrow bones are perhaps my favorite splurge. I love it cooked in any fashion, but your method of preparation is my favorite. Lava salt is all the rage here, but ours comes from Iceland. I'll have to look for the Hawaiian version. Lovely photography as always...

This is exotic (to me), delicious and nutrient-packed! You certainly cook with a wide variety of ingredients!
