Grilled kangaroo anyone?

Kangaroos abound here Down Under, but I have not seen one strutting before my eyes. I have seen a lot of them on TV though. This is one native animal I would like to see in person alive. But that will be a few days from now as my husband and I were promised by my sister-in-law's friend that she'll take us in the countryside and there'll be some there prancing before us.

In the meantime, my husband being an adventurous one when it comes to cuisine would like to try kangaroo meat. With the help of my husband's niece we found this exotic meat at the Queen Victoria Market in downtown Melbourne.

Kangaroo meat in marinade.

Gil, my husband's nephew, marinated the meat in bolgogi sauce, chopped onion, and crushed pepper corns.

On the grill.

And done, ready to eat.

My plate.
I thought I was not going to eat it, but it looked so good; tasted good I ate a lot. It was...yummy...yummy.

Will do my friend. Hope my stay here is not going to be spoiled by this strep throat. Grrr...of all days. I guess, it's the change of climate here.

Mari said...

Ebb, yup, it looks good and tasted good as well. You know? Just like beef. Thanks for the visit.

Tina, you're lucky to have seen a kangaroo. I hope to see one this coming weekend when we go to the countryside. Thanks for dropping by.

Sandy, it tasted a bit like beef. I thought I wasn't going to eat it, but I did. It didn't look any different than other meat. Thanks for the visit.

Good on you!

Great to hear of your down under escapade. Will have to read more! :)

(During my stay in my friend's place in Wonboyn, Wallabies and Kangaroos abound in the yard. Nobody touch them, nor butcher them let alone eat them. They love to pose for my camera.)

My husband is the adventurous one when it comes to food. He once brought home bear meat. He cooked it and then later on after I'd eaten that what I actually ate was bear meat :(

The meat came from his friend - fisherman and hunter :)

Oh you are travelling. Enjoy.

kangaroo meat.. makes me wonder how they taste, and if they taste good. one's taste buds is not the same as another's taste buds. :-)
