Bone Marrow Fried Rice

Fried Rice with Bone Marrow

Few years ago, when bone marrow was the new “it” food item, it was everywhere. I just remember how much my dad and my sister use to love eating the bone marrow used for boiling soup. That soft, silky texture of bone marrow tastes rich but after being boiled in soup, the only remnants are the marrow without the fat. It feels guilt free to indulge on these yummy bones, but the flavor is also missing after being boiled in soup, you enjoy it more for texture. Baking the bone marrow can retain that fragrance of the bone marrow as well as keep that fat and silky texture. 

Bone Marrow Fried Rice

I thought that making fried rice with the bone marrow can give the traditional fried rice that fragrance to eat without feeling too indulgent. I personally love eating beef tongue because of that chewy texture and I find that the marrow fried rice and beef tongue go really well together. 

This dish means a lot to me, its the first original dish I came up with. Learning how to cook was intimidating to me at first, and learning about how well the seasonings go with each other was a learning process. Like many people, I was afraid it was just gonna be a big mess and get laughed at. But with each failure, I have to come to realize that all you need is to put your heart into what you’re doing, and you can’t fail. People can taste the love and hardwork you put into a dish, and the appreciation you see on your family’s face is priceless. Ever since I started making this bone marrow fried rice, my husband and my sister both love for it. So much so that they fight for it when they crave it. 

This is a hearty dish you can make at home or bring to a party. The richness of the bone marrow combined with the chewiness of the beef tongue really makes the fried rice flavorful. Using the mirin in the fried rice also brings a sweetness to it.
