Bone Marrow Butter
There is nothing better than butter unless, of course, you put some delicious beef bone marrow in it! This decadent, and delightfully rich, recipe is the perfect accompaniment to a grilled steak or a beautifully smoked prime rib. So go and grill a killer steak, put a little marrow butter on it, and round out the experience with a hearty glass of red wine. ENJOY!
- 1/2 pound of unsalted butter, brought to room temperature
- 4 beef stock bones, cut lengthwise (ask you butcher to cut these for you)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley
Preheat your smoker to 400 degrees.
Place the bones on a tray and roast for 20 minutes.
Remove from the smoker and scrap the roasted bone marrow from the center of the bone and let cool for 10 minutes, reserve.
In a bowl combine, the roasted marrow, butter, salt, and parsley and mix together until fully incorporated; an immersion blender is recommended here.
Spread a sheet of plastic wrap across your counter and place the marrow butter in the center, in a straight line, and wrap tightly.
Place into the refrigerator to set and become firm.
Slice and enjoy as a garnish, or on hot toast, as needed.
