Today was a day of firsts for me.
I bought some kangaroo fillet steaks from Woolworths that were on sale. I know that the meat is lean but you can't over cook it or it will be dry. The steak fillets were marinated in a herb and garlic sauce and the instructions said that although kangaroo steaks should be eaten medium rare, the marinade contained a tenderiser so even if we cook it well done, the meat should not be tough.
Another first for me was cooking potatoes in the microwave. I only had two small potatoes left in the pantry so there was no point in parboiling them and roasting them. I put them into the microwave and selected the 'vegetables' function and the microwave used its sensor function to cook the potatoes. After a few minutes, the potatoes were cooked but still had a little crunch to them. I could have zapped them for another thirty seconds or so but I like the crunch when I'm eating potatoes in salads.
Aside from a few little strands of sinew in the steak, it really was very tender and lean. It's got a gamey taste, that's for sure. It may be an acquired taste for some people but I think I can really enjoy adding kangaroo into my repertoire in the future!
