Beef and Textures

Whipped Bone Marrow
Order pre-split bones unless you have a ban saw. Place bones cut side up on roasting racks and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes to loosen the marrow. Take out of the oven, scrape out all the marrow into a bowl, working with it still hot is the easiest. Place the marrow in the cooler until chilled. If you are going to use the bones boil the bones in water with vinegar to loosen all the meat and fat, so you can scrub the bones clean. While the marrow is chilling cut what you want to put in the marrow, it can be anything you want. What I put in it was shallots, garlic, thyme, parsley, Dijon, lemon, salt and pepper. When the marrow is chilled add your cut ingredients to a mixing bowl add the marrow and with a paddle attachment mix until fluffy. Adjust the seasoning if need be. Use the whipped marrow at room temperature or store in the cooler until needed.
