I’m in the land of the Aussies and when in Oz…
I traveled here last Friday and what is wonderful about flying west is that you don’t have such bad jet lag. It’s the flying back east that does you in! It is summer here in Adelaide and the weather is glorious! I’ll do a post on the hikes I’ve been doing tomorrow, but today’s special is Roo!
We purchased the kangaroo in the market and to me it looks like beef…
I made a spice rub with chili, garum masala and cumin and rubbed it in all the crevices…
I then seared the Roo on both sides in 2 Tbs of coconut oil…
I chopped 2 onions and a nice piece of ginger and tossed into the crockpot, put in just enough water to cover the bottom, placed the Roo on top of that and poured the drippings from the pan on top of all of it…
Cooked on high 3.5 hours and bam…
Tender, falling apart meat! The onions cooked down nicely and the gravy was yummy!
Plated with an organic salad and this was a perfect meal 🙂 I also enjoyed a 1/2 cup of rice and those purple things are carrots!
I liked the meat. It wasn’t gamey at all. Reminded me of buffalo meat, but tastier and more tender. I would definitely try this again!
Have you tried something different? How did you like it?
Oh how I wish I were wealthy because I would love to have you as my personal chef. Where are you staying that you have access to the kitchen?
Staying with friends with a well stocked kitchen! Maybe one day I’ll come visit and you can put me up for a few days and I’ll cook for you in exchange 🙂
A kangaroo once punched my mother in the face. I’ll remain silent on how I feel about that (snicker), but I think she’d appreciate this post. I hope you have fun Momma. I so dearly love and miss you!
LOL, Kira, so naughty. I miss you, too. Hoping for a weekend visit after I’m home and you’re settled into your new house xoxo
You’ve seen me nude and growling in a fish tub while eating chicken and watching Naked Gun 33 1/3 (she was my midwife everyone!) . I don’t need to be settled to have you come over 🙂
You’re absolutely right! Love you xoxo
I see you are enjoying your travels – how fun! Kannot say I’ve ever had a Kangaroo in my Krockpot! 🙂 Kannot say I want to – ha!
Lol, MJ… It was yummy!
I tried it when I was over there, its not too bad is it? Though feel a bit bad eating it.
I think a long time ago I started thinking of all the cute and fuzzy animals the same as I do cow and pork… Once you do that, you’ll try anything without guilt 😀
Sandi, I just adore your posts!
Thanks, Mona 🙂
