Treating Beef Bone


Baz

Recommended Posts

Hi all - Got my first piece of beef bone from my local butcher the other day (all my first efforts were with donate bone so id not have any say in cleaning etc)

I followed Stephen Myher's guide lines - scrape clean, soak in detergent 2 - 3 hours, scrape again, soak again then rinse and dry.

My question is:- After scraping the marrow out, I am left with a "honeycomb" finish on the inside of the bone - Can this be removed at this stage, or does it have to be done after cutting pieces out to carve?

I find butchers who are nice enough to cut the bone in half making it easier to clean out the inside. Often, if the bone is big enough, I don't bother getting rid of the honeycomb. After soaking it I let it dry for 24 hours then cut the honeycomb off so the oils don't seep into the bone. Then I store the piece til I'm ready to carve. If I want a bigger piece of bone I use a disk grinder to get rid of the honeycomb. Can be messy, but works well. b
