Animal studies suggest that AKGs may inhibit cancer growth by selectively destroying cancer cells via their ability to induce apoptosis. Some studies have also found that AKG’s help the body to eliminate toxic heavy metals such as mercury and that they may help protect healthy tissue from the effects of radiation therapy. Because of the immune system enhancing effects of alkylglycerols, they also help the body to fight bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections. (1)
Sweet! So I decided to make a sauce out of the bone marrow to put on top of my steak for dinner.
1 bone marrow bone
1 tbsp of butter or traditional fat of choice
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 medium grass-fed steak
1 teaspoon of garlic
salt and peppa
Roast your bones (I roasted two but only used one) for twenty minutes on 450. Let cool.
Melt butter or fat of choice over medium high heat, salt and pepper the steak and cook to your desired rareness. In my case, about a minute on each side. If that. I like ’em rare!
When it’s almost done cooking, scrape the marrow out of the bones and directly onto the cooking steak. There are fancy marrow spoons, but since I was unequipped I managed to get it all out using a chop stick. Once it’s all out, add the lemon juice and garlic to give it a quick sear.
