beef butter

I'd always heard about how awesome bone marrow is, and they were on sale at the market, so I picked some up to see what the hype was about.

roasted marrow bones with cilantro salad
Very rich, very beefy, and almost too much for us. It was nice to try once, but I don't think we'll be having them anytime soon again. Parsley is the more traditional accompaniment, but we both prefer cilantro to parsley, so I made a cilantro, lemon, garlic salad to go with it. That is probably what makes the dish - the freshness of the herb and lemon really counteracts the unctuousness of the marrow..
