Tonight we are having Kangaroo Casserole for dinner. Kangaroo meat is a 'gamey' meat and is harvested from 'farmed' kangaroos - not wild kangaroos. Current populations for kangaroos in Australia stand around the 25 million mark. This means there are similar numbers of kangaroos in Australia as there are cattle (28.7 million).
Kangaroo meat is lean meat being 98% fat free and comes in hygienic packages and is available from most supermarkets in Australia
It is affordable, costing around $20/kg for fillet steaks.
This is the contents of a package of 495gms of fillet steak, costing just under $10.00
For this recipe I am going to 'silk' the meat, which involves slicing it into thin pieces to begin with.
This is a bag of meat that has been refrigerated for 4 hours:
When it is cooked, thus far, I set the casserole aside in a covered casserole dish to cool at room temperature.
A nice crusty bread roll and a bottle of red wine really sets off the meal.
