    Kangaroo! Anybody eat it?

    Here is a photo of the Kid's latest meal. Roast of Kangaroo!

    Looks to be cooked medium or medium rare. I don't know if it sounds all that good to me, but he is trying to eat everything he can while he is in Australia.

    I'm starting to wonder if he is there to learn how to cook or build roads and bridges?

    What can anybody tell me about kangaroo meat.

    Very good taste. Very similar to beef. Is usually pretty lean, quite tender and has a strong flavor.

    Seems to me it might taste like a buffalo roast. Lean, tender and good for you.

    Really, really good. That looks perfect and makes me jealous. My recollection is texturally like a filet mignon with a 'wild' twang.

    Only the aboriginal males were allowed to eat 'roo.

    If he hasn't had barramundi yet, he needs to.

    I'm carnivore as it gets...but Kangaroo is one I won't touch...they're a national symbol (not sure if it's an official designation or not-might be koala) and that'd be adkin to us eating our bald eagles...

    Kangaroos are the National Animal of Australia.
    From what I understand the Eastern Grey Kangaroo is the one for dinner in Australia. They breed like rabbits and have to be thinned, so they just eat them.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Grey_Kangaroo

    Now on the flip side, the Red Kangaroo (Macropus rufus) is the sacred cow of the Australian people. In other words: Thou shalt not eat Red Kangaroo! For you Husker fans going to Australia it's easy to remember which can be eaten. Red is regarded as being sacred there too! That's why I like to eat a nice brown Buffalo.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationa...s_of_Australia

    The way I look at it: It's bad to eat the American Bald Eagle, but it is fine to eat a Turkey.

    Does anyone know what kind of wine goes best with Kangaroo?

    Probably some kind of shiraz.

    Time helps some species, species, species
    Come back and grow stronger
    I'm glad one creature, creature, creature's
    Endangered no longer

    I want to fry up an eagle
    Just to see
    Fry up an eagle
    Use the Colonel's recipe

    It's still illegal
    It shouldn't be
    I need to know what one tastes like

    I want to fry up an eagle
    My curiosity
    First killed the cat
    Who wasn't that tasty, frankly

    I want to fry up an eagle
    They're dolphin-free
    Glenn Frey and the Eagles said it subliminally

    Do-do, do, do-do (they're bald)
    Do-do, do, do-do (and yummy)
    Do-do, do, do-do (oh yeah)
    Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.

    Actually, you can check out Yellow Tail wines (they have a kangaroo on the bottle) and they recommend a shiraz-cabernet blend.

    Better suited to a nice Coonawara Cabernet, I'd say, as it's more like beef, but shiraz would work too. Just made me think of the Wirra Wirra from Margaret River I had saved for 10 years that we drank at our wedding last year. Yum!

    Yellowtail is swill compared to most Aussie reds. We tend to get the bulk-produced wines here, of course, so you have to dig a little. I scored some close-out bottles of Penfold's Bin 128 shiraz and bin 407 cab recently at Hy-Vee, which are a little better.

    They are a nuisance in a lot of areas...think of them as hopping deer-plenty of roadkill.

    hmm as buff pointed out there are some variety...I might go for the Eastern Grey then...My sister and her hubby are going on a 6 week honeymoon to Aussie this fall...problem is they're vegetarians so they won't get me any meat...I do want to return to Oz one of these days...had a great trip back in 1995...it was wild.
