Kangaroo burgers recipe

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.

    Roo burgers, or “roosoles” as we call them are a fairly regular meal at our house and what I do is add another type of meat to tone down the gamey flavor – I’ve used lamb, beef and Turkey and they all work well. I usually just buy the 1 kg bag of roo mince in the meat section of Woolies/Coles and add 500g of the other meat then rest of the bits and pieces to make up the patties. This makes a lot and I freeze them raw which works well. Glad you enjoyed it!
