kangaroo
 
My staple quick-fix dinner: kangaroo fillet slit into strips, pan-fried with some onion and garlic, to which I added a good amount of button mushroom slices a bit later.

Then added some ground pepper, sprinkle of soy sauce, and half a glass of South African cheap white plonk before thickening the sauce slightly with cornflour.

To go with it, I cooked a cupful of plain Basmati rice with a little filtered water, to a nice fluffy consistency.

Bianca made a salad with some lettuce, plus cucumbers and fresh tomatoes and herbs from the garden.

Quick, delicious and nutritious!

Cheers,

LMH

NB: We love eating kangaroo (buying say 400+ grams pre-packaged at Woolworths, not slaughtering the visiting wallabies LOL. This means 100 g each of extremely lean, 'carbon-neutral' meat for each of us at one meal, twice a week...)

We get lots of beef and lamb from Australia and New Zeeland, but no marsupials yet.

LMH,

What does the Kangaroo meat taste like? Can you compare it to something us North Americans eat? Beef, chicken, lamb, turkey, etc?

My daughter frequently does a kangaroo roast in her WFO. The meat is somewhat "gamey" tasting. quite dark and extremely lean. The kangaroo has hardly any fat on him, so it's quite a healthy meal. It is also part of the Australian coat of arms along with the emu which some people here also eat.

It is more like lean mutton or goat than lamb or beef.

I guess you could call it gamey.

The loin is the best bit, I like it diced & marinaded in red wine & garlic, then threaded onto skewers & cooked on a BBQ.

It's most like Venison, in flavor and texture but with a stronger game accent.
If you like venison, you'll love kangaroo.

IMO....it's nothing like, beef, lamb, goat or anything else 'mainstream'

Ken, you'll have seen the earlier replies - I can only agree that it has a very slight 'game' taste. I don't remember the taste of venison or hare, but it's probably a cross between these...

How come we don't export kangaroos?! There's always a lot of culling going on, most recently by the army in the Canberra area, and people get hopping mad! That excellent meat from culls is totally wasted, if we had any sense we'd at least incorporate it in army dinners...

There are lots of good reasons for eating the native beasts when they're abundant, and to cut down on those methane-farting cows lol!

Cheers,

LMH
