Recipe – Dukan & Paleo – There’s A Kangaroo in my Crockpot!

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…

20130214-073500.jpg

I then seared the Roo on both sides in 2 Tbs of coconut oil…

20130214-073548.jpg

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…

20130214-073706.jpg

Cooked on high 3.5 hours and bam…

20130214-073908.jpg

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!

20130214-074132.jpg

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?

Recipe – Dukan – Momma Sandi’s Amazing Crockpot Ribs

Mmmmm! These were GOOD! And easy!

I tore the plastic wrap off and sprinkled generously: sea salt, cumin, chili powder, cayenne and paprika.

20130204-161304.jpg

I heated up 2 Tbs coconut oil in the pan and put the ribs, seasoned side down, to brown. I then generously sprinkled the exposed side to the same spices. Browned all 4 sides and put in the crockpot with the juices from the pan. I did this 4 times, as we had a big family lunch planned for after church yesterday.

I threw in 1 cup of my homemade veggie stock (any gluten free stock will do) and cooked on high for 4 hours… It fell off the bone and was DELICIOUS!

Enjoy 🙂

Recipe – Dukan – Turkey Dinner

So last Saturday I made a turkey dinner. I love cooking turkeys many times a year. It can be challenging, especially when living overseas. This time there was only one turkey to be found in all of Hangzhou! But we got him 🙂 He was a turkey grown locally, so very lean. Also, I don’t have an oven. I have something akin to a toaster oven. But Everyone knows I love a challenge!

Ingredients:
Turkey
Large pear – chopped in large pieces
Large green apple – chopped in large pieces
Large red onion – chopped in large pieces
6 garlic cloves – chopped in large pieces
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper

First remove the innards stuck in the rear. Here in China, that includes the head! I couldn’t touch it, blech!! So I used wooden spoons and did a forcep delivery.

Then give your turkey a good bath… Inside and out. Place in pan you are going to use.
Stuff the turkey with the pear, apple, onion and garlic. The moistness and tenderness from simply using these 4 ingredients is amazing!

Generously rub olive oil all over your turkey, don’t forget between his legs and under his wings.
Generously douse with salt & pepper.
Put him breast up and in the oven.

Cook 15 minutes for every pound at 350 degrees F.

That’s IT!! Don’t put aluminum foil on his bits, leave him alone! He’ll be perfect!
