Grilled bone marrow is one of the most underrated foods. It is like beef butter packed full of flavor that can be eaten right after its cooked, lathered on some bread or spread on top of steak! Seriously, its concentrated beef flavor that takes 10 minutes to make.

How to Cook Grilled Bone Marrow

We have eaten a lot of bone marrow at my house, but sometimes I like to switch things up. Normally we grill it directly with just salt and pepper. But if you have been following me for a while, you know that I am a fan of cooking in unconventional ways. Today, we are making Grilled Bone Marrow but with a parsley, garlic and parmesan crust on top.


1. Good Charcoal:

First, we need to light the Cowboy Charcoal. Always a key factor to good grilling is good charcoal/wood. Cowboy knows what’s up!


2. Having a Good Topping:

Next we will make the garlic paste that goes on top of the grilled bone marrow. Olive oil, minced garlic, chopped parsley, salt and pepper mixed in a bowl then lathered over the beef bones. Grate some parmesan on top to your liking. I like mine with a lot of cheese (no judgement) but you live your life.


3. Making a 3-Zone Fire:

Finally, we create a 3-zone fire for cooking. This is just 3 zones inside your grill with the following protocol: “heat, no heat, heat”. Add the grilled bone marrow to the “no heat” part and let cook for 10 minutes.


4. Get That Perfect Crust

The crust is my new favorite part. Get that cheese & garlic flavor combined with the smoke & heat from the Cowboy Charcoal. I like to add the grilled bone marrow on top of sourdough bread and call it a day!
