Serves: 4-5 as an appetizer
Ingredients
  • 8-10 pieces/cuts of beef bones, marrow in tact
  • 1 head of garlic, top cut off
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 lemons, for squeezing
  • sea salt, for sprinkling
  • chives, for garnish
  • toast, for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Cut off the top of a head of garlic, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and wrap in a foil packet. Put the garlic in the oven and roast for 40 minutes or so, until golden and caramelized.
  2. After the garlic has been in the oven for 20 minutes, place your bone marrow in a heavy-bottomed skillet so they all stand upward, and roast them in the oven for 20 minutes, until the fat is soft and melty, but not completely melted (which will happen, so keep an eye on it or you will just have pools of fat in your pan, which is no good).
  3. Serve the bone marrow hot, with small spoons or forks, alongside the garlic for spreading, lemon for squeezing, and salt and chives for sprinkling. Enjoy!
