Come to Australia and you have to at least try to buy your own Kkangaroo meat from your local supermarket to cook kangaroo steak. It's the cheapest meat you'll find in the land down under.
This meal is courtesy of Paul, my cousin's honey. :p
They say that kangaroo meat is super tough because it's all lean meat and no fat (they do jump a lot). Which reminds me, I saw a horde of kangaroos hopping passed a field while I was at a winery out of Canberra today. It was a grand sight! Beautiful almost, such magnificient creature, such speed, such height.
Paul's a super good cook and had my steak medium done, which was perfect and the meat didn't turn out tough at all (though I like it medium rare where it's all bloody and red inside but it was delicious nonetheless!).
We savoured the dish over a hearty glass of Shiraz picked up from the very same local winery where we saw the herd of kangaroos roamed pass.
Finally, finishing off with some home-made apple pie (thanks to Paul the amazing baker, too) topped with banana custard cream and vanilla ice cream. Just the perfect finishing touch!
There you go, another addition to Nicole's been-there-eaten-that list. Kangaroo meat.
