Kangaroo Burgers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Peter J

Yes as a beer advertisement says we do eat our national emblem in Australia. Cook over a BBQ with beer in hand while the kids are inside watching repeats of 'Skippy The Bush Kangaroo' on TV. I think it would also work with other low-fat game meats that don't have a really strong flavour.

This was the best rated recipe I could find for a first try at kangaroo. I grilled the burgers and they came out juicy and delicious. Rave reviews all around. I will be making them again. The only change I made was to saute the onions and garlic in a tablespoon of bacon grease before adding as the meat was so lean. If grilling I would suggest oiling the rack well as they wanted to stick a bit when turning.

  1. Thoroughly mix all ingredients together in large bowl.
  2. Form into 8-12 burgers as desired and cook on medium well oiled BBQ plate until cooked through, turning several times. It is a fairly crumbly / low-fat burger so turn over carefully.
  3. Serve on toast, in a hamburger bun or with a salad.
