Last night was one of my more ambitious culinary failures. I have always wanted to try bone marrow, after seeing them repeatedly on the Travel Channel and Food Network. I unfortunately did not do enough research, and am not even sure if I was using the right type of bones.
I began by tearing off any loose meat on the three bloody bones, preheated my oven to 450F and threw them in. The recipe I was following said to only cook them for 15 minutes, however the thought of eating raw bone marrow was enough to make my stomach turn. So, I overcooked them and the result was a disgusting, putrid smelling gelatinous substance. However I did make a delicious olive oil, shallot, parsley and lemon dressing for them.
On the side I had simple roasted cauliflower seasoned with garlic and onion powder, over plain white rice.
This will be the last time I try to tackle a dish like this without doing further research.
Live, learn, correct, don’t repeat.
P.S. My house still stinks of burnt bone and flesh.
