Bone Dust

Do you know what that is? If you buy meat prepackaged from most supermarkets the pieces are usually saw cut though both the bone and the flesh. This creates something butchers refer to as "bone dust". It's that powdery, slightly mealy pink stuff that you have to remove before cooking. A good butcher will remove said bone dust. But, mostly we've been seeing that extra step eliminated in the high volume commercial markets.

Not much to do. Just remember that you be sure to remove it yourself. A knife edge or a spoon will do the trick. Or, you can go all in and get the professional real deal tool. But, please don't. Only if you're cooking for a crowd, and often.
