Marrow bones are lovely just by themselves. I just pan roast them to get good color all around, then serve them with a lovely piece of bread.

But if you want to use them for broth, I'd definitely roast them first, I don't care for beef broth made with raw bones. Just be aware that a good deal of the marrow will melt into the pan when you do this, so just scrape it out into your stock pot.

Great thank you. What temp do you roast them at?

I just do it on the stove top to eat it straight.

Oh geez I know it's probably so easy but I'm a little intimidated since I've never done it before. I guess it won't hurt If I under cook it right. I'll google a recipe

I use beef marrow bones for broths. I just throw them in the pot of water. The marrow will slip out when it gets tender enough.

Nope - many people eat it raw.

Seriously though, I just heat up my CI, drop the bones in and brown them on all 6(?) sides. By the time they're a nice dark brown, the marrow is soft and ready to slide out.

I'm going to try tonight. What's CI
Do you season or salt them at all.
TY for your help with this
