Michelle Rodriguez is known as the tough chick from the Fast and the Furious movies. Born in Texas to a Dominican mother and a Puerto Rican father, she is used to hearty dishes. One of the things she swears by is a soup made from bone marrow and there’s a good reason for that.
While bone marrow is not a typical food in American diets, it is very popular among the Puerto Rican, Dominican, and other Hispanic cultures. Rodriguez enjoys Sopa de mondongo, which is a soup made from diced tripe (the stomach of a cow), vegetables, which is also known as bonemarrow soup.
When we talk about bone marrow, we’re talking about bones. Those same bones you throw out after you eat the meat off chicken, beef and even pork. The bone marrow is found inside bones and the easiest way to get the bone marrow out of the bones is to do a broth.
