The bone marrow has certainly undergone a fancy makeover, from its humble beginnings as a heartwarming local soup to a star-winning dish served on elegant plates. Think: Joseph Gordon Levitt’s transformation, from that lanky dude from 10 Things I Hate About You to Hollywood’s hottest new leading man.
Most posh restaurants have begun serving bone marrow as one of their must-try dishes, and it’s amazing how much damage this rack of artery-clogging goodness can cause not only to your heart, but also to your wallet!
Ladies and gents, snap out of the glam and shazam. As long as it is well-prepared, it will taste the same anywhere you go. All you need to do is to salt and flavor that log of cholesterol with some herbs before roasting it into melt-in-your mouth goodness. Slather it on some form of carb (mini soft tacos, crostini, bread), and then top with a generous spoon of salsa.
Though the dish seems simple with minimal components, roasting fully develops the flavors, bringing them to the level of decadence that restaurants are only too happy to charge you for. Make this dish at home and save your money for the quadruple bypass you’ll probably need after eating this. It’s incredibly easy to make, and you will praise the kitchen gods for bestowing on you a recipe that sends you straight to the heavens, figuratively, of course.
