What to Eat? 13/11/2010

What is the one animal you come to Australia to see? No, not a koala, okay definitely a koala but name another...a crocodile? No...okay maybe, I mean Crocodile Dundee and the late Steve Irwin who wanted to bring awareness to the reptial...but think again....a KANGAROO! Thats right those wonderful animals that hop around and carry their babies in their pouch. So what do you do but make wallets and eat them...wait, WHAT?!?!?! Alright, so maybe having a kangaroo wallet isn't so special but have you ever eaten some kangaroo meat?

And to top it all off, it was free! Yeah, that's right my dinner for the night was free. Some girls that I was sharing the hostel with were going out for dinner and did not think they would eat the rest of their kangaroo meat so they gave it to me. Now, I've never cooked kangaroo meat but how hard can it be?

Actually it was quite easy and let me say, it was absolutely tender and so much flavor. Just add a little bit of salt and pepper and some red wine vinegar....sear each side and whoa-la! I'm telling ya....more and more I'm becoming an Aussie. Oi! Oi! Oi!
