    If you can get smoked roo then that goes nice with a creamy sauce.
    You could also team it up with some emu meat and have the classic Aussie 'Coat of Arms' meal!!
    Nice peppery side salad...mmmm.... crank up the bbq!!
    Good advice, thank you. We actually have some ostrich and emu farms here in San Diego county. The climate here is very similar to Australia so I guess they feel at home.

    have also used roo mince for meatballs in curry sauce like rendang or rogan josh.
    Oooh that sounds good too. I made some of the mince into balls with a Moroccan hot sauce the other night. It seems to go well with intense spices.

Fry in a generous splash of virgin coconut oil, adding some ground lemongrass and galangal as you go (fresh would have been better). Stir often to prevent it sticking and burning. When coloured and fragrant and sizzling, add very roughly chopped roo loin and stir till coloured. Add water to almost cover, bring to boil then simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours. Check every now and again to make sure it hasn't boiled dry. Should end up with a thick sauce with the oil beginning to separate. Meat pulled apart and had a very mild flavour. Gravy had a mild rendang flavour. Smiles all around. I served it with a green salad and rice for the family. Roast vegies would have gone well
    I love hot chili peppers. This is definitely going in my recipe book. Thanks Peril.

    I chuck 500 grams of mince roo in with 500 grams of another mince meat, sometime pork, or chicken or turkey, and make a bolognaise sauce out of it. YUM!!!

    We just had kangaroo for the first time last night. I made it into meatballs (with hidden veg) and servered with a tomato based sauce. They were very yummy. No one even picked we were eating skippy!

    Cook it quick and hot otherwise it turns out like leather.... Taste good if done right.... Some even slow boil it in a pot of water then sear it for 3 mins each side and its lovely like that with a good sauce.....
