I bought some Kangaroo steak from Harmony Farms the other day along with some antelope sausage. The sausage was amazing!!! Anyway I was wondering if you folks had some ideas for Kangaroo. Its supposed to be like beef but a lot less fat. Thanks. :roflmao3[1]:

You can't go wrong smoking it. I think you could smoke an old boot and it would taste good!

I lived in Aussie for a bit over 2 years while I was photographing wildlife. I only had it ground as a burger. I didn't see it served any other way. It might be that it will be a tougher meat. Let us know how you do. I usually always pull out the pressure cooker or crock pot when I have questionable tenderness in the meat to be served.db

Crock pot sounds the way to go...maybe spicy dry rub before, with just a bit of water or broth...make "shreaded roo tacos"? My wife does it this way with a tri-tip or pork...tastes good...http://mazecafe.com/?p=26http://www.aussiecoo.....ngaroo tacos/

Well I had the kangaroo the other day. I put a little salt and pepper on the loins and seared them in olive oil with garlic. Once the meat was a dark brown I braised it in some cabernet till the wine cooked down and served it with baby roasted sweet peppers and asparagus with a garlic aioli. It was awesome!!! It tasted like a cross of venison and beef.

Typical of Kalifornia - I can buy kangaroo meat, but when I want to order a nice kangaroo leather shooting glove for my longbow - Nooooo! No shipping to our glorious state...

 If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

My wife makes it into a meatloaf, then she slices the loaf up and makes it into burger sized slices adds a piece of cheese on top and cooks it long enough to melt the cheese. Places it on a burger bun and makes a different tasting type of buger that is out of this world!!!!

I had it off a grill. It was ok, but was still tough.

The meat I had was super tender didn't need a knife at all. But I like my meat bloody and moving on my plate too.
