About this recipe: Typical Italian risotto as the tradition of my city wants it. Directly from Milano I send you this wonderful recipe!
I want to try this recipie, however, I do not know where to find beef marrow. Any suggestions? - 22 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've used this recipe so many times that it has become my signature "wow" side dish, especially when making Osso Buco. Saffron can sometimes be hard to find, but don't worry. This recipe still turns out great without it (the same can still be said when you omit the marrow). And keep in mind that you can swap out the Parmesan for another cheese to mix it up a little. For example, Gorgonzola works great. If using a different cheese, rely on taste as opposesd to the given measurements as stronger cheeses will require less and vice versa. - 14 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Most local butcher/supermarket meat departments save bones for your dogs in the back or even sell them in a package to you. These will all have marrow in them and they usually have techniques to get it out. Small spoons are usually the best. - 11 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
