Grilled Bone Marrow (aka, God’s Butter)
· 1/2 cup rosemary leaves, plus 2 rosemary sprigs
· 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
· 10 2-inch canoe-cut beef or veal marrow bones
· Salt and freshly ground pepper
· 1 Loaf sliced country bread
· 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
Rough chop the fresh rosemary and combine with 1/4 cup of olive oil. Transfer the oil to a large bowl, add the marrow bones and toss to coat. Season the bones with salt and pepper.
Light the grill. When temperature is at medium high, lay the bones cut side up on grate. Cover and grill for about 20 minutes, or until the marrow is warmed, sizzling.
Brush the bread slices on both sides with olive oil and grill, turning once, until toasted. Serve the bones with the toasted bread and finish with salt, pepper, and chopped parsley.
