I did it, I tried roo meat and...

Postby Fiona25 » Sun Mar 09, 2008 7:49 pm

Can't say i'm a huge fan :? but I think it was more psychological.

I had roo sausages and if someone else had've made them for me and told me they were lean sausages I probably wouldn't have known the difference but because I KNEW it was roo, I didn't really enjoy them! I had a MASSIVE mixed salad with it so put a heap of salad on my fork with every bit of sausage to hide it a bit.

I have some roo steaks in my fridge but I don't know...

I will have the sausages once a week though for sure. Any sausage that has .8 grams of fat per sausage is a good sausage :lol:

I might try the mince in a bolognase with low carb pasta, or some chopped up steak in a casserole, i'm sure i'll get used to it. Hell, for the nutritional levels of it and how low in fat it is I have to!

I was scared too Nikki!

I recommend the sausages, they didn't seem as daunting as the steak! And lots of salad or veggies as a side to hide it a bit hehehe

Man, roo is tasty :) I actually like cows better than I like kangaroos, so the "ick" factor of eating it just wasn't there for me. It tastes a bit strong and gamey for some people - like venison - but you can disguise that with a tasty sauce or herbs or something... persevere because it's good for you, but there's no point eating something you don't like just cuz it's healthy.. you can make healthy meals with other forms of red meat too :)

Yeah definately dont over cook it, it should still be pink in the middle, otherwise it can be tough and yukky. Try a nice marinate or sauce with it to cover some of the game taste. Kangaroo goes really nicely with poached fruit - weird but true so you could make a sauce with poached pears and sultanas. Had it like that at my brothers wedding was really yummy.
Cheers

Can i suggest that if you want to try a roo steak, try it at a restaurant first? It can be a bit tricky to cook and it would be a shame to be put off because of the way it was cooked...
I use it for chilli con carne or bolognaise, you really cant tell the difference once its sauced up!
I'm with Mandie, I like cows better :D I dont have a problem eating roo, or a bunch of other unusual stuff, i figure if i eat some animals, why not others!

We bought some of the marinated Macro Meats steak and I just pan fried it with no oil and it was so yummmmmmmmmm!!

Really tender and not too strong!

The macro meats line is great - you can get them pre-marinated which is so handy. I haven't tried the sausages - next time a BBQ is planned I will have to get them :wink:

Have you tried it minced? Can't say I've tried the sausages or anything but we got some and made a lasagna out of it and it was really yum!! Slightly stronger tasting than beef but my family couldn't tell the difference :P Muahaha
