Care For Some Marrow?
When I made Osso Buco a few weeks back, I must admit that my favorite part of that meal was eating the marrow out from the inside of the shanks.
Marrow is a good source of fat-soluble vitamin K, all of the B vitamins, lecithin, calcium, magnesium and zinc.
Yes, it is high in fat, so please don't misread this post as me telling you to ONLY eat marrow; rather, be adventurous and try eating ALL the different parts of the grass-fed cow (or which ever type of meat you're eating marrow from), rather than ONLY eating skeletal muscle.
Can get much more Paleo than that!
As far as preparation, you can extract the marrow out of a shank as I mentioned above, if you've done a stew or braise; alternatively, you can serve the shanks, roasted, on their own as an appetizer.
Makes for quite a striking presentation!
