Kangaroo meat - recipes?

Postby Fiona25 » Wed Mar 05, 2008 11:51 am

Well, i've bitten the bullet and bought some roo meat which I will be having for the first time on Friday night. I'm quite apprehensive as i've never had it before!!!

Can't anyone recommend a nice recipe or the best way to cook it?

I'm thinking of grilling it and having it with steamed veggies and a low fat pepper sauce.

Also, what does it taste like? Can you compare the taste to other meats?

It seems to be very good for you so I have to get on the roo train and at least try it :P

Fiona, we eat it a lot. It tastes very similar to beef, but is denser and more "gamey" if that makes any sense?

I love the flavour to be honest.

And regardless of weight loss efforts, I hate fat on meat, so the fact that it is SO lean, I enjoy eating it.

We eat it as steaks mainly.....I tenderise it with a meat mallet then marinade in just a bit of olive oil and usually lemon pepper. Then BBQ with salad/grilled veggies.

In winter time I use it as a replacement for beef.......so think casseroles/curries etc. Great in a slow cooker.

yep i've had it kind of grilled like a steak... only once though so can't really comment... however to me it just tasted like meat. not specifically chicken or bee for anything, just like a meat flavour. sorry that doesn't really help :lol:
