Thank you. I will correct that mistake.
Could you please tell me whether this sentence is correct as well?

I cut the meat off the bones with a knife.

    I think I'd almost always expect off. This is also influenced by the expressions meat on the bone and therefore meat off the bone. (Meat is supposed to be more flavoursome if cooked on the bone.)
