Rich and delicious baked bone marrow mixed with parsley, black garlic, ancho chilli and panko breadcrumbs, is great for steak night (and date night…) as well as a Sunday roast with crispy potatoes for an impressive but easy dinner party dish.

Not only is bone marrow cheap to make, but it's and surprisingly easy and quick to cook. 

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10-12
Serves: 2 servings
Dietary: Dairy Free, Nut free


  • 2 bone marrow halves (Split by your butcher, ask them for “Canoe cut”) (About 8-10cm long)
  • 100g Flat leaf fresh parsley 
  • 15g Panko breadcrumbs 1 Clove of black garlic 
  • 5g Ancho chilli 


Preheat oven to 180 degrees (200 fan oven)

Scoop out the bone marrow (Be careful of any sharp pieces) and crumble into a bowl. 

Finely chop the parsley and put into the bowl

Add the ancho chilli, black garlic and panko breadcrumbs into the bowl with a pinch of maldon sea salt and pepper for seasoning. 

Mix with your hands until combined and make sure you mix thoroughly for more flavour. 

Fill the empty bones back up with the mix evenly and cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes 

Grate some lemon zest over the top for extra flavour

And there is nothing like a shot of single malt of your favourite whiskey to finish it off. 

Goes with: 

Baked bone marrow is obviously great with steak and especially umami flavours like miso, which enhance the richness of the bone marrow. Its a marriage made in heaven.

But it also goes with everything from toast, anchovies, or even with a fried egg and chilli oil for breakfast.
