Ready In:
14hrs 15mins
4 steaks




  • In a bowl, mix everything together except for the sour cream. Place kangaroo fillets in mixture and coat well. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and let marinate for at least 4 hours, turning fillets every so often. When first coming up with this recipe I marinated mine for 14 hours :).
  • After marinating. Melt some butter in a hot frying pan and cook fillets for about 8 minutes on each side or to your preferred cookedness. (Depending also on the thickness of the fillets).
  • Once fillets have cooked, pour the remaining marinade into the frying pan and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Add the sour cream and mix well. Salt and pepper to taste and spoon over the kangaroo fillets.
  • Serve on a bed of mashed potato and some vegies!

  1. I only had time to marinate for 2 hours so I tenderised the roo fillets. Used powdered garlic and ground oregano and a splash of olive oil and only cooked 2 minutes on each side but followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. Divine! That sauce was amazing and complimented the flavour of the roo perfectly. Licked the plate and pan clean!
  2. Easy recipe with amazing results. I have never enjoyed kangaroo until now. The first steaks were marinated for 48 hours, the second batch were marinated for 72 hours. Tender as can get and full of flavour. Pan fried, but would love to try on the BBQ to.


Hullo :) My name is Belinda and I am a 22yr old mummy who lives in Queensland of Australia. I live with my partner and my 3yr old daughter, who both absolutely love my cooking. I've been stalking Recipezaar for years now, and finally bought my own account, YAY. I used to be one of those people who lived in microwavable packaged food, but have since discovered the joys and yumminess of home cooking! I love most food.... but I've recently made a lifestyle change which restricts potato, wheat, and rice in my diet. I look forward to finding masses of low-carb recipes and making my own :-)
