Default kangaroo meat

Anyone else experimenting with kangaroo meat? I had my first go on the weekend, kangaroo roast, it was really good. I had read a bit that it may be tough, but it was really tender and good. Doing a kangaroo green curry tonight so hopefully that will also be nice!

Its seems like a good alternative to beef, lower fat, better for the environment and way cheaper.

I want to but for some reason just haven't been able to do it yet. Stare at it in Coles but then veer back to the beef. Does it taste 'meaty'? Or is it milder?

It's a very strong flavour I think, reminds me of venison but not quite as nice

I wasn't keen on eating the national animal but caved under the enviromental argument and the added "low fat" benefits.
I use it in the same way as minced beef for chilli, lasagne etc.

Great recall! Was there ever an episode of Skippy where someone didn't fall into the creek? Ah, such simple times!

Default Re: kangaroo meat

I must admit it did take me a while to buy it and I am not at all squeamish about food, I will eat absolutely anything
It does taste nice, its stronger than beef, but not unpleasantly so. It does have a gamey taste to it.
My biggest concern with buying it was whether they are humanely hunted or not.
I havent used it as a mince yet, but would probably be nice as a lasangne. Might try that next.

No hair regrowth to date, but its done wonders for my halitosis . . .

Can I enquire on your progress with the 'increase your size' rub-on cream? I know its not designed as an all-over body embrocation but, as they say, in for a penny in for a pound.

Default Re: kangaroo meat

love the steaks, great on the barbie and some of the butchers sell tenderised and marinated which is also lovely.
We find the sausages dry probably due to the low fat content and we dont really like the mince either.

Strong gamey taste, love it.

.[/QUOTE]

Kangaroos are professionally hunted by licenced Roo Shooters. Each Roo Shooter is given a predetermined number of "Numbered Tags" each year. This enables the shooter to kill that many Kangaroos. Each Roo is identified by the shooters Tag and records by the shooter are kept and sent on to the relevent authorities (these records include the sex of the Roo - Male/Female, if female, was there a joey in the pouch or/and at foot. The Kangaroos have to be "head shot". Each carcass can be back-tracked to the shooter and if it is found that too many Roos are being chest shot, that shooter can have his licence revoked.

The average Roo Shooter will have approx 3,000 tags per year,.
