Australia Day is fast approaching, and nothing says 'Aussie' like an outdoor barbeque! Prepare to spend the day with family and friends, eating some of Australia's unique food. Why not take it a step further this year and try Kangaroo steaks? Even the most diehard carnivore will be impressed by this dish at your Australia Day celebrations!

Kangaroo is one of those proteins that is frequently forgotten at the family barbeque, but I'm going to show you that it's actually not that different from cooking a regular steak on the BBQ, as long as you don't overcook it.

I believe the reason Australians don't cook kangaroo very often is that overcooking it tastes like eating a leather boot.




Personally, I want my steaks rare, but kangaroo isn't for you if you don't like pink in your meat and can't handle rare to borderline medium rare.


Today we're seasoning our kangaroo steaks using Low n Slow Basics' Lamb Layup, which is great on all game meat, including kangaroo.

When you buy it, Kangaroo is already chopped into steaks, so all you have to do is season it and throw it on the grill.

As previously stated, you don't want to overcook the kangaroo, so have an instant-read thermometer accessible and be ready to remove it off the grill at around 52 degrees, a maximum of 55 degrees.

I cannot emphasise enough how important it is not to overlook your kangaroo steaks. Keep the tongs in your hand and turn them every few minutes, and keep that instant-read thermometer in your pocket ready to probe when they reach 52-55 degrees.


They are completed! Let them rest for 5 minutes once they've been removed from the heat.
