    Why did I wait 28 years to eat this?!

    Primal Fuel
    So we bought some bones at our butcher the other day and we finally got around to making the them today. We cooked them in the oven at 375 for about 20 min (they were big bones!) in one of our cast iron skillets. As my husband was getting all of the marrow out, I fried up some onions in the drippings. We then poured the onions, fat and all, over the marrow. OH MY GOD - it was AMAZING!

    I have 2 questions now that we're sitting here having delicious goodness filling our stomachs:
    1. Why did I wait so long to try this?
    2. What can I do for my hard to work hard to keep this a secret so other people don't buy all the bones?
    3. When am I going to the butcher next to buy some more?

    We're using the bones now to make a broth and I can't wait to put that to use. MMMMMM

    Thank you Mark for never ceasing to amaze me with new ways to enjoy life!

    Yeah, I feel cheated by CW. I was sooo steered wrong for way too long. But I'm making up for it now and I can't even believe the stuff I used to eat compared to the amazing REAL FOOD I eat now! I am very thankfully for this site too.

    So I'm seeing that most people on the interwebs eat their marrow on toast...

    What's everyone's favorite way to eat their marrow?

    I was worried that there would be too much mushiness and not enough texture to the marrow - which is why I went for the fried onions for a little crunch. I can see why people that eat grains would eat it with toast .... I'm sure if not for the fact that it is bread, it would be awesome!

    I'd love to hear other people's methods for eating it too!

    Honestly, the very best way to eat marrow, is slathered all over a steak. steak = good. marrow = good. marrow + steak?= effervescent
