After driving straight across country to return to Colorado the many frozen slurpies at gas stations sparked our conversation about a bone marrow slurpie I sampled while in New York.
I like bone marrow, particularly of veal and beef. I enjoy it on toast or in an enriched hollandaise sauce or poached in broth and served with ponzu sauce. Through our recent culinary travels I had the shocking pleasure of trying pork marrow at Grand Sichuan in Manhattan. The dish is not for those who may be timid or unsure of what a bone marrow experience is about. I was presented with an entire ham bone stripped of most of its meat with a straw emerging from the marrow and a stir fry of vegetables around the base of the bone. I was instructed to drink or slurp the bone marrow and gnaw on the bone to enjoy any gristle and meat still attached to the ham with the stir fried vegetables.
The dish was interesting to say the least. I drank a bone marrow slurpie and survived.
