In my local supermarket, I found this:
Affordable, with ticks in all the boxes (except it being low in fat - read: cook it with lots of lard!)
The beau screwed up his nose at it, so I decided to buy it and have a taste test between the roo mince and the only source of organic beef mince available to us between Organic Direct deliveries (coming this weekend, woohoo!):
500g beef mince
500g kangaroo mince
1 brown onion, diced
1T coconut oil
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two trays with baking paper.
Sautée diced onion in coconut oil. Add garlic and stir until fragrant. Remove from heat and evenly divide mixture into two large mixing bowls.
In one mixing bowl, add the kangaroo meat and half of the remaining ingredients. Stir well.
And in the other, the beef mince and the rest of the ingredients, and stir.
Heat some extra lard in a ceramic frying pan. Create burgers by grabbing handfuls of meat mix, squish it into a ball, then gently press it into a flattened burger patty shape. Fry in pan until browned, flip, and brown other side. Then place on lined tray. Repeat until tray is full, and then place in oven. Bake until cooked through.
I kept the roo and the beef burgers separate, in order to see whether the boy could pick the difference. Well yes, he could, since the kangaroo meat was delicious and utterly flavourful, unlike the comparably bland beef!
Smaller ones are the beef, larger are roo. Served with a little vintage Australian cheddar. I could only stomach one of the beef burgers after my first taste of roo, and went back into the kitchen to make a mega-burger with some of the remaining roo:
Made another mega-burger, all set for breakfast tomorrow. Yum!
Other eats today:
Breakfast - two eggs scrambled with a little cheddar.
Lunch - two pizza frittatas.
Snack - Babybel and ham.
Judging by the fact that my digestive system is running with a purr, my body is overjoyed that I've cut the fruit and nuts, and only consumed 3g fibre today (in the pizza frittatas). Tomorrow will be the same, with maybe a little fennel with dinner... Or not, who knows?!
