This is not only the first time I have cooked kangaroo, but also the first time I have eaten it! I was worried I would find the taste of the kangaroo meat a bit too strong for my liking, so decided to make burgers and plenty of veggies to them.
They were easy to make and I enjoyed eating a different meat. I can get very set in the foods I eat, so it is great to have another easy to make protein based food in my go to list of meals to make.
These burgers reheated well for a few days after as well. While I haven’t frozen them yet, the next batch I make, I will make double and freeze them individually to have as an easy source of protein for my lunches.
- 500 grams kangaroo steak
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots
- 2 zucchinis
- 2 cloves of garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- In the food processor, grate the onion, carrots and zucchini.
- Place grated veggies into a large bowl.
- Crush garlic into the veggies and season with salt and pepper.
- Place kangaroo meat into the food processor and mince.
- Add the kangaroo mince to the veggies and using hands mix it all together.
- Shape ⅓ cup of the mixture into a burger. Repeat this step until you have finished the mixture. I made 12 burgers.
- Add coconut oil to a large frying pan and heat on a medium high heat. Add the burgers to the pan and cook for around 4 -5 minutes each side.
- Remove from pan and serve with a colourful selection of veggies.
