They say the devil is in the details and I admit, there are times when I really really enjoy making things far more complicated than they need to be (like taxes, and relationships and Ikea assembly instructions) but even I will admit there are times when simple is elegant — like this next recipe.
Marrow bones are all too underappreciated these days. Often regarded as little more than a chew toy for your favorite hell hound, or even worse, discarded all together as waste, the marrow bone is a long forgotten delicacy for most humans.
Ahh, but not for us denizens of Hell…oh no. Down here in Hell we love our marrow bones…and with all the juicy politicians you’ve been sending us as of late to roast for all eternity over pyres of brimstone, we’re growing fat and happy just off these alone!
Of course, roasting politicians on Earth has more to do with comedy routines and $10,000 a plate State dinners (and you say I’m evil) than piles of smoking sulphur, but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your own less expensive and less problematic version.
For this recipe you will need:
- Marrow bones (roughly 1/2 pound per person)
- 1 Tablespoon parsley
- 1 Tablespoon coarse sea salt
That’s it. Just three simple ingredients. I told you this was an easy recipe!
Start by preheating your oven to 425F/218C.
While your oven heats up, give your marrow bones a quick dunk in cold water.
Sprinkle both sides of your marrow bones with the coarse salt and set them in your roasting pan wide side down.
Dust the tops of your bones with your parsley and put into the oven for 25 minutes, or until the fat turns translucent and begins to run down the sides of your bones.
Remove from the oven and immediately plate and serve with toasted garlic bread.
…And that’s it. Three simple ingredients and 25 minutes later you’re enjoying the rich, ridiculously decadent taste of thick delicious marrow on toasted garlic bread.
